Abstract and Keywords

This chapter considers the changes wrought by the Reformation, in an attempt to sketch continuities and changes from the Christianity of the middle ages. It looks to the further geographical changes that began in the late fifteenth century with the discovery of the New World; to the radical shifts in Christian practice in Protestant lands, and the more subtle changes in Catholic countries; and notes throughout the complex relationships between secular power, the papacy, and religion in the post-Reformation period.

Keywords: Martin Luther, Council of Trent, Jesuits, John Delumeau, sacerdotalism, the papacy
