Kenneth Clark takes us back to the Reformation. Traveling through Germany, France and England, he looks at Albrecht Durer, Martin Luther, the world of Erasmus, Montaigne, and Shakespeare.
The Protestant Reformation was the schism within Western Christianity initiated by John Wycliffe, Jan Hus, Martin Luther, John Calvin, and other early Protestants.
