500 Years ago, Europe went through one of the most remarkable and turbulent periods in its history. The lines of political and theological power were rewritten in ways that were nuanced, subtle and philosophical, but also in ways that resulted in bloody massacre and destruction.

Absorbing and insightful, this book offers a deep and engaging analysis of events that still echo loudly today.

Harry Reid

Harry Reid is a former editor of The Herald and bestselling author of books on both The Church of Scotland and Scottish football. He holds honorary doctorates from the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow for his services to journalism and is a life vice-president of the journalists' charity, the Newspaper Press Fund.

'Reid breathes life into the extraordinary personalities and writes with fluency and pace, articulating trenchant, provocative and often controversial judgments on virtually every page of this very readable book. Professor Tom Devine. Its a smashing read.' --Richard Holloway

 'A compelling and sometimes disturbing pageturner which gives colourful life to this dangerous and bloody battle for religious democracy and freedom across Europe.'-- Life and Work Magazine

 'Every so often an author finds a subject which fully suits their intellectual capacities, and the result is a stimulating and timeless book. Reid and the Reformation form that perfect match: there can be no higher praise.' -- Trevor Royle in The Herald

'Harry Reid's Reformation is a timely reassessment of the crucial series of events that created modern Scotland...most remarkably, Reid tells the story in a way that includes all traditions and lays aside any suggestion of sectarianism. ' --Mike Russell MSP, Scottish Education Minister, in The Scotsman Books of the Year 

'Reid breathes life into the extraordinary personalities and writes with fluency and pace, articulating trenchant, provocative and often controversial judgments on virtually every page of this very readable book.' --TM Devine, Sir William Fraser Professor of Scottish History and Palaeography, University of Edinburgh.
