The Literary Culture of the Reformation

Grammar and Grace

Brian Cummings

Brian Cummings examines the place of literature in the Reformation, considering how arguments about biblical meaning and literary interpretation influenced the new theology, and how developments in theology in turn influenced literary practices. Bringing together genres and styles of writing which are normally kept apart (poems, sermons, treatises, commentaries), he offers a major re-evaluation of the literary production of this intensely verbal and controversial period.
