Confessionalization in Europe, 1555-1700 explores the practice of 'confession building' which, in relation to that of 'social disciplining', promoted interrelated processes contributing decisively to the formation of confessional churches, greater social cohesion, and the emergence of the Early Modern absolute state. These are the themes treated in memory of Bodo Nischan. Through the analysis of liturgical, ritual, and ceremonial practices, Nischan sought a better understanding of the Reformation's engagement with the people. The book brings together a closely-focused set of essays by leading scholars from the USA, UK, and Europe to address what historians of the Early Modern period have recently come to define as the pre-eminent issue, as they turn their emphases from the earlier part of the 16th century to the relatively neglected latter half of the century.
