Carlos Eire’s new book, Reformations: Early Modern Europe, 1450-1660 (Yale University Press, 2016) won two important prizes from the American Publishers Association. It won the R. R. Hawkins Award, which is the association’s top award, and it also won the award for excellence in the humanities (see https://proseawards.com/winners). Reformations “chronicles the two-hundred-year era of the Renaissance and Reformation with particular attention to issues that persist as concerns in the present day. Eire connects the Protestant and Catholic Reformations in new and profound ways, and he demonstrates convincingly that this crucial turning point in history not only affected people long gone, but continues to shape our world and define who we are today.”
