"The disastrous Protestant defeat in the Schmalkaldic War (1546–47) and the promulgation of the Ausburg Interim (1548) left the fate of German Protestantism in doubt. In the wake of these events, a single Protestant town, Magdeburg, offered organized, sustained resistance to Emperor Charles V's drive to consolidate Habsburg hegemony and reinstitute uniform Roman Catholic worship throughout Germany. In a flood of printed pamphlets, Magdeburg's leaders justified their refusal to surrender with forceful appeals to religious beliefs and German tradition. . . . The teachings developed and disseminated by Protestant thinkers in defence of the city's stance would ultimately influence political theorists in Switzerland, France, Scotland and even North America . . . The Chancery of God is the first English language monograph on Magdeburg's anti-Imperial resistance and pamphlet campaign. The book offers an analysis of Magdeburg's printed output (over 200 publications) during the crucial years of 1546–51 . . . " (dust jacket).

Publisher's black cloth with silver lettering to spine; corners bumped. In original yellow dust jacket; minor edgewear, areas of front panel and spine faded. Interior is bright.  (40265)   Please RESHELVE This.
