So, if I've only read The Reformation by Diarmaid MacCulloch what am I missing?

I realize that this question is probably far too big. Feel free to confine yourselves to book recommendations or whatever short comments seem apposite.

If you want more books on the Reformation please go to RicardusTheologus. I have an extensive library on Systematic, Historical, and Reformation Theology. I hope this helps.

Given that Diarmaid is my supervisor, I should probably be telling you to keep on reading him! But it rather depends on what bits of the Reformation you're interested in... For England, how about The King's Reformation, or the classic works by A G Dickens, J Scarisbrick? And then there are thousands of more specialist books...

I know much less about the European Reformation. For a very scholarly, if slightly dull, book, there is Euan Cameron's The European Reformation, but then also some very fine biographies of individual reformers. (just steer well clear of anything by Roland Bainton!).

Any questions, feel free to drop me a line!
