Excerpt from The Reformation of the Sixteenth Century: In Its Relation to Modern Thought and Knowledge
The Hibbert Lectures out of which this volume has been condensed were delivered by Dr. Charles Beard in the spring of 1883. They were the sixth of a yearly series of Lectures arranged by the Hibbert Trustees and delivered by men of European reputation. Dr. Beard had been preceded by such men as Max Müller, Ernest Renan, and Professor Kuenen.
The question may naturally be asked why this particular series of lectures has been chosen for republication in a sixpenny edition. There are three good reasons for so doing.
First, Dr. Beard was by general admission profoundly versed in his subject and united with his great learning a very unusual charm and mastery of style.
Secondly, in his treatment of Luther and the Reformation he is strictly impartial and fair to a all parties.
