The Reformation is often chronicled as a single, momentous period in the history of the Church, where a number of…competing groups of reformers challenged a monolithic and corrupt Roman Catholicism over issues ranging from authority and the role of the priests to the interpretation of the Eucharist and the use of the Bible in church. MacCulloch argues instead that there were many reformations. He challenges common assumptions about the relationships between Catholic priests and laity, and explains that even within various groups of reformers there was scarcely agreement about ways to change the Church. 2004, c2003.
