Reformation Journal 6

Volume 6 of the Tyndale Society’s annual academic journal, Reformation, will appear in December of this year. The journal is now firmly established as an international forum of the highest quality and attracts a wide readership, as well as many of the finest articles dealing with religion, literature and culture in the early modern period. I have now been editor for the last two years and my aim has been to continue the excellent work of our founding editor, David Daniell, and his two successors, Gerald Hammond and Andrew Hope. The journal has been fortunate enough to be able to include articles by such major scholars as Patrick Collinson, Christopher Hill, Susan Felch, Peter Auksi, Ralph Houlbrooke and J. B. Trapp, as well as a host of other younger scholars whose names will soon be well known. It has included articles on a diverse range of subjects including, the apocalyptic theology of Thomas Münster; the portraits of William Tyndale; the conversion of the Jews in seventeenth-century England; the publication of translations of the Bible in the New World; histories of Henry VIII’s Reformation written during Mary’s reign; the death of Richard Hunne; and the style of William Tyndale’s translation.

My aim as editor, supported by an excellent team of associate editors and an advisory board, has been to attract the best work on the Reformation from the time of Tyndale onwards. Reformation contains work that is stimulating, lively and pertinent to contemporary issues in religion and culture and our aim has always been to produce work that is relevant beyond the circles of academia itself. There is also a comprehensive section of reviews of recent work, commissioned by the reviews editor, Dr. Thomas Betteridge. I hope that members of the society who do not receive Reformation will contemplate taking a subscription, as I guarantee that they will not be disappointed. If anyone wishes to submit an article or a note, please consult the guidelines contained in the journal and send it on to me:
