Iconic Piety in Russia
Modern Christianity to 1900
After the Reformation, Christians found themselves living amidst wars of religion, Enlightenment, and colonization. This volume explores the spread of Christianity to lands outside Europe and the Middle East, the new pluralism within Christianity, and the incredible transformation of the Americas and of Christianity in the Americas, including the advent of Evangelical, African
American, and Asian Christianities. Includes 50 illustrations, maps, bibliographies, and an 8-page color gallery.
In this volume, the way in which lived Christianity and its practices were altered by these global changes is probed by an illustrious group of scholars led by distinguished historian Amanda Porterfield.
