Editorial Reviews


'... this book is now the best available on this unjustly forgotten figure and will be an important resource for anyone interested in early Reformation historiography.' Catholic Historical Review 'Altogether, Alexandra Kess has delivered a most comprehensive biography of Sleidan, as well as an analysis of the Commentarii with many interesting aspects, especially on their diffusion and reception.' German History 'By way of a nuanced exercise in historical reconstruction, Alexandra Kess has provided Reformation historians with a book that sheds light on Sleidan as well as the composition of the Commentaries and its later reception.' Bulletin of the German Historical Institute '... Kess's volume offers important contributions to both our understanding of the biography of an important and undervalued scholar of history in the early modern world, and to the study of the historiography of the early moderns themselves.' Religious Studies Review '... this book makes a substantial contribution to current research on the Reformation and its earliest historians.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'Finally, we have a comprehensive and detailed biography of the 'father of Reformation history', making full use of the secondary and primary sources, including the extensive published correspondence and some manuscripts.' English Historical Review 'Alexandra Kess's achievement is an impressive one, in no way limited to the fleshing out of Sleidan's biography... There is much to gain from this work beyond its seemingly narrow focus.' Renaissance Studies
