'...this is a wonderful book to which I shall return time and again in the coming years. Robert J. Bast is to be thanked for making the work of Berndt Hamm from the University of Erlangen available to an English reading public in a translation that is clear and precise.'
Brian Patrick McGuire, The Medieval Review, 2004.
'Berndt Hamm, though a prolific scholar, is not very well-known outside the narrow confines of his specialty, namely scholars of the era of the German Reformation. This is unfortunate, since his scholarship has a theoretical and historiographical breadth that should recommend it to a broader acadmic audience. The volume in question remedies this situation by making available in English some of his most important articles...The object of bringing Hamm's work to a broader audience was a worthy one, and this is volume that belongs in any credible research library collection.'
Patrick M. Hayden-Roy, Renaissance Quarterly.
This book comprises the first major collection of articles in English translation by University of Erlangen Professor Dr. Berndt Hamm, one of the most important and innovative scholars of the intellectual history of late-medieval and Reformation Germany. The articles herein trace the evolution of Christian theology and piety from the twelfth through the sixteenth centuries, employing a variety of disciplines and interpretative models to chart transformations with extraordinary attention to historical context. Hamm's intensive work with previously unknown sermon collections, devotional works, and pastoral care manuals from the later middle ages serves as the basis for a new appraisal of the lines of continuity and change between that era and the German Reformation.
