Recensioner i media
Carme Font Paz, Comitatus Kneupper's book is a brilliant, engaging and most-needed analysis of a relatively reduced but influential corpus of late medieval literature that contributes to the understanding of the religious and political genesis of the Protestant Reform.
Jesse Spohnholz, Reading Religion The Empire at the End of Time should find an eager readership among historians of the late Middle Ages and the early Reformation, but also among readers curious to learn more about Christian apocalyptic traditions.
John Watkins, The American Historical Review Kneupper treats her subject with admirable care and precision.
Robin B. Barnes, Renaissance Quarterly By showing more concretely and in greater detail than ever before the ways in which the spread of anticlerical and apocalyptic prophecies went hand in hand with an emerging sense of what it meant to be German, Kneupper's work makes a significant contribution to our understanding of late medieval culture. Scholars in early modern studies, including those who focus on the Reformation era, can gain valuable insights here as well.
