About Book

Book Description

"Until the middle of the seventeenth century, when complacency got the better of the good intentions of the 1560s, the Counter-Reformation triumphed in Spain. In this process, Nalle shows in her thorough study, persuasion was more effective than coercion. The Inquisition served as a means of spreading the Tridentine doctrine, and of registering the good results, rather than as an instrument of terror."--Times Literary Supplement.

"Nalle succeeds in truly writing a solid cultural history. She is devoted to an understanding of the material base without being a reductionist, and is able to explore ideas without losing sight of commonalities and realities. Her book blends the best of microhistory with a certain Rankean meticulousness."--Sixteenth Century Journal.
