Catholic Identity and the Revolt of the Netherlands, 1520-1635

Judith Pollmann

The Past and Present Book Series

  • Offers a new view of the Dutch Revolt which explains how a culture gap sealed the political outcome of the conflict
  • The use of diaries and memoirs allows the reader to get closer to the experiences of sixteenth-century believers
  • Adopts a lay perspective on the Catholic reformation as opposed to the clerical perspective in most studies
  • Includes images and maps to demostrate the role visual culture played in religious culture, and to help the reader to follow political developments
