A Sourcebook of Early Modern European History contains 79 short essays, each comprised of a primary source (of a manageable length and translated into English) and an explanation of the source's context and meaning. Spanning the period from c. 1450 to c. 1750 and including primary sources from across early modern Europe, from Spain to Transylvania, Italy to Iceland, and the European colonies, this book provides an excellent sense of the diversity and complexity of human experience during this time whilst drawing attention to key themes and events of the period. It is ideal for students of early modern history, and of early modern Europe in particular. Published in honor of Susan C. Karant-Nunn, Director Emerita of the Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies and Regents' Professor Emerita of History at the University of Arizona.
About David Y. Neufeld
Dr. David Y. Neufeld is a historian of religion, culture, and daily life in the early modern world, with a particular focus on the history of German-speaking lands in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In his current book project, Neufeld explores how the maintenance of alternative cultures by religious minorities shaped their ability to coexist with members of a dominant majority, using later Swiss Anabaptism as a case study. He also explores how archival practices have shaped historiographical characterizations of early modern Anabaptist separateness. Neufeld earned his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in 2018. He has held grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Society for Reformation Research, and the Leibniz Institute for European History in Mainz, Germany. Neufeld is the Assistant Director of the Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships at the University of Arizona.
