The Oxford History of Poland-Lithuania

Volume I: The Making of the Polish-Lithuanian Union, 1385-1569

Robert Frost

Oxford History of Early Modern Europe

  • The only study of its kind in English, and the only study in any language since 1919
  • Demonstrates the importance of the Polish-Lithuanian union for an understanding of the politics not just of modern Poland, but also of Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania, and of the later formation of the Germanic states
  • Provides a case study of the formation of a political union that calls into question current scholarship on the nature of composite states in late-medieval and early modern Europe
  • Analyses the emergence of a multinational, religiously diverse union built as much from below, by its citizens, as from above by its kings
  • Aids understanding of the nature of religious toleration and conflict in late-medieval Europe
