God in La Mancha

Religious Reform and the People of Cuenca, 1500–1650

About the Author

Sara T. Nalle is a professor of history at William Paterson University and the author of Mad for God: Bartolomé Sánchez, the Secret Messiah of Cardenete.

Reviews

A persuasive and nuanced account... There is little doubt that this carefully researched work will become one of the standards in the religious history of Spain.

- American Historical Review

Nalle succeeds in truly writing a solid cultural history. She is devoted to an understanding of the material base without being a reductionist, and is able to explore ideas without losing sight of commonalities and realities. Her book blends the best of microhistory with a certain Rankean meticulousness.

- Sixteenth Century Journal

Until the middle of the seventeenth century, when complacency got the better of the good intentions of the 1560s, the Counter-Reformation triumphed in Spain. In this process, Nalle shows in her thorough study, persuasion was more effective than coercion. The Inquisition served as a means of spreading the Tridentine doctrine, and of registering the good results, rather than as an instrument of terror.
