1: Principally in Germany and the NetherlandsW. Gilpin, an English author, wrote in his day biographies of Wickliffe, Lord Cobham, Huss, and Jerome of Prague, whom he entitled the best-known of the Reformers prior to Luther. On the work which I now present to the goodwill of the public, I might inscribe the very opposite title, and call it, Biographies of the least-known of those early Reformers. In that case, however, it would be requisite, if proper, to annex, that they all the more deserved to be known.In fact, with few exceptions, the men of whom these volumes treat, and whom, for brevitys sake, I call Reformers, although aware what distinguishes them from those to whom the name is strictly due, are not well known, or rather, are most of them, wholly unknown, whereas other forerunners of the Reformation are mentioned in even the most concise histories of the world, and live in the mouths of all.

The way in which this has happened is quite natural. The Reformation, in one aspect, was a fresh conception of the faith and doctrine of the Gospel, formed from a central point of view, then for the first time clearly and vividly recognised. In another aspect, however, it was also a great fact in the history of the Church and of mankind - a conversion of what was previously only known and taught into action and reality - a drama composed of successive magnificent acts, and in which, upon different platforms, the chief monarchs and nations of Europe played the parts.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
