From Icons to Idols
Documents on the Image Debate in Reformation England
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"David Davis challenges the idea that iconoclasm and Protestantism go hand in hand and presents with his book a major contribution to the academic debate on this issue. It is an enriching pleasure to read and consider his careful analysis of a wide variety of early modern texts and images. The sources presented here also make this book perfect for use in class."
--Herman Selderhuis, Professor of Church History, Theological University Apledoorn; Director, Refo500
"David Davis's admirable collection of documents illuminates the complexities of the debate about images provoked by the Reformation in sixteenth-century England. Bringing together Protestant and Catholic voices and combining critical texts with compelling pictures, it challenges the tired paradigms that have inhibited our understanding of the nexus between religion and the visual arts in the early modern period. It will be an excellent resource for scholars and students alike."
--Alexandra Walsham, Professor of Modern History, University of Cambridge
