‘Reformations’ looks at the competing visions of reform. Luther advanced his critique of Catholic corruption in print, and found support amongst the pious German people and the princes. In Zürich, Zwingli began an independent assault on tradition with the support of town magistrates. These ideas were taken up by the peasants in radical form. Princes and foreign rulers began to convert to Lutheranism and a Protestant identity coalesced. Calvin's reformation in Geneva spread to France, Britain, and the Netherlands and challenged a fragile status quo. Meanwhile, Catholicism underwent a spiritual and military recovery after the Council of Trent. Confessional toleration was possible only after religious war.
