Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
"For a generation ritual studies have changed the face of early modern European history, but only with Susan Karant-Nunn's lucid book, the first of its kind, is the extensive power of religious ritual in the German Reformation fully uncovered....No other scholar has demonstrated as much care in discovering the gender implications of ritual reforms."
-Professor Clarence Ver Steeg, Northwestern University
