Surveying the spiritual and intellectual upheaval experienced throughout Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries, this study forms Volume V of The Penguin History of Europe. Greengrass traces the eclipse of the older notion of 'Christendom' - the Western European community of belief held together by the Roman Catholic Church - by the divisive challenge to papal authority, by dynastic conflicts that changed the relationship between rulers and ruled, and by geographical and scientific discoveries that undermined the unity of medieval Christendom.
