Reformation Era: History and Literature

This group is an extension of a rather ambitious personal reading goal. I hope to read about the Reformation Era in England and Europe, focusing especially on the 1500's but also including the 1600’s. I want to read the literature of the Era, mostly in chronological order, mixing in history and biography as needed. I don't have too much reading time available, so I'm anticipating this will be a "slow burn" for quite a while.

Read along with me, or just pop in from time to time. Ask questions, if you wish. That's what I plan to do. A list of some of the books I hope to read will be given in the first post.
