Sinopsis: R.W. Scribner's pioneering work analyzes the forms of popular propaganda aimed at the illiterate and semi-literate during the German Reformation and reproduces many of the prints which still survive in Germany. A new Introduction and an additional chapter in this edition advance original interpretations of these illustrations, revealing how visual propaganda both exploited and participated in popular belief and the coarser aspects of popular culture.
