Collaboration, Conflict, and Continuity in the Reformation:
Essays in Honour of James M. Estes on His Eightieth Birthday

Edited by Konrad Eisenbichler

For several decades James M. Estes has been pointing to the complexity of the problems facing sixteenth-century reformers and the practical solutions they were able to reach. The career of Johannes Brenz, who successfully laid the foundations for a territorial Church in Württemberg, the careful analytical thinking of Philip Melanchthon, who sought (but failed) to reach an accord with the Catholic side, and the incessant correspondence of Desiderius Erasmus, the Prince of Humanists, who saw the liberal arts as the solution to this world’s problems, all serve as guideposts for Estes’ career as a scholar, but also for this collection of articles in his honour.

"The esteem in which Jim Estes’ scholarship is held is reflected in the simply stunning array of scholars assembled in this excellent volume. Their essays are uniformly first rate. This is a volume that not only honours Jim’s work, but coheres and educates." -- David Whitford, Baylor University

"The quality of this collection is remarkable. The editor has called together a list of outstanding contributors from both sides of the Atlantic. The thematic parameters marvellously evoke a series of diverse, yet complementary articles that shed new light on the establishment of the Reformation, the dissolution of religious consensus, the frequent and – thanks to this volume – surprising degree of dialogue across confessional lines, and the shifting networks of people whose convictions, quirks and personalities changed the face of the Western Christian tradition." -- Robert Bast, University of Tennessee

"The high quality of this volume surely does honour to Jim Estes." -- R. Emmet McLaughlin, Villanova University
