Example text

Marshall, The Catholic Priesthood and the English Reformation (Oxford, 1994), p. 102. 70 The study of the early Reformation, in England and elsewhere, has undoubtedly suffered from an anachronistic obsession with the ‘origins’ of later confessional movements, and an insufficient interest in or understanding of the extent to which early evangelicals were shaped within, and emerged from, the complex religious culture of their own age. Nonetheless, in investigating the experience of evangelical conversion in the quarter-century following Luther’s break with the papacy it would be strange to suggest that we are not somewhere near the source of what would later be called Protestantism.

157 ff. James interpreted conversion in psychoanalytical terms as the process ‘by which a self hitherto divided, and consciously wrong, inferior and unhappy, becomes unified and consciously right, superior and happy, in consequence of its firmer hold upon religious realities’.
