How did Christians in early modern Western Europe express their sense of community? This book explores the various ways in which religious identities were defined, developed and defended - within both Protestant and Roman Catholic contexts, in England and on the Continent - over a period vital for the history of Christianity. As such it will be of interest not only to historians of religion but also to students of social and cultural history in general.

'... it well repays dipping into, and is skilfully reflective of its subjects work, interests and personality. Ditchfield and his team have done a difficult job well.' Archiv fur Reformationsgeschichte '... an exceptional collection of original essays, each one of a very high academic standard and together forming a fascinating study of the complex relationship between religion (...) and social change... The volume is excellent... It shows a genuine commitment to details and to fact... It should be read by all engaged in history or the study of Christianity as a concrete reality.' Colloquium 'In its rich development of the fundamental themes of Bossy's erudite corpus of historical scholarship, this volume is a worthy tribute to a brilliant historian.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'Most every historian of Christianity will find something of interest here... this book is a must.' Religious Studies Review '... valuable for understanding how communities functioned in real practice and over time.' Renaissance Quarterly 'This carefully edited volume is graced with a select bibliography of Bossy's writings and a personal reminiscence by Peter Jupp, a touch so often lacking in many bone-dry Festschriften aiming for scholarly immortality by entombing the recipient in the mausoleum of dessicated writing. There is deep learning and warm personal moments in this collection, which helps to illuminate a life of scholarship that continues to exert its wide influence.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History
