PATHS TO REFORM: THINGS NEW AND OLD. Sandra Hindman and Laura Light. Paul Holberton Publishing, London, 2013. Textmanuscripts. 116 pp. with 46 col. ills. ISBN 9780983854654 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Paths to Reform traces the fascination and turbulent history of reform in the Medieval Early Modern Church from the twelth through the seventeenth centuries as seen through forty contemporary manuscripts and a number of printed books. Brought together, these manuscripts -- their physical format, their text and illustrations -- offer a new historical perspective as well as vivid testimony to the ways in which communities of the faithful practiced their beliefs... The core of the book explores in greater detail texts (especially those in the vernacular) associated with the Devotio oderna and parallel movements in France and Italy... The last part of the book examines manuscripts asociated with the Protestant Reformation, including a New Testament, a Psalter, an illuminated Lutheran prayer book, and a Catholic Book of Hours with inappropriate passages crossed out so that it could still be used in Protestant England. There is also a fascination collection of hymns in the vernacular meant to be sung in unison during private meetings among reformed churchgoers.
