Excellent Account of The Reformation

There is enough information in this one hour draft to sweeten anyone with an interest or educational project. From start to finish we are given a clear concise over-all of the difficult times when Religion ruled Europe.

Clearly narrated smooth and precise with just enough eagerness to keep the storyline interesting to the very end. If anything; you are left thinking how you could listen for another hour.

So well done are these one hour accounts that you look forward to listening gain as there is so much information to absorb.

Not a good history of the Reformation

The performance was fine, but the history was lacking in objectivity. You could tell that from the selection of personal details on Luther and particularly Calvin, in that these personal details cast these two major figures in a very, perhaps unjustifiable, light. I did, however appreciate the correction of the record on Zwingle's death, he did not die with a battle-ax in his hand, but kneeling over a falling solder after the Battle of Kepple had ended. That was useful and helpful.
None of the reformers were perfect (as they would be the first to tell you), and they lived in a brutal and violent age, very different to our own. It is misleading to assess them according to the standards of our own age. I felt that at times this history did just that.
