Form the blurb:
The Reformation of the Landscape is a strikingly original and richly textured study of the relationship between the tumultuous religious changes of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and the physical environment of Britain and Ireland. Looking beyond churches, cathedrals, and monasteries, Alexandra Walsham explores how the Protestant and Catholic Reformations affected perceptions and practices associated with trees, woods, springs, rocks, mountain peaks, prehistoric monuments, and other distinctive topographical features. Embracing insights from a range of disciplines and exploiting a vast array of sources, her book examines how the theological and cultural transformations that marked the era between 1500 and 1750 shaped and were, in turn, shaped by the spaces and places within which they occurred. It investigates the critical part that the landscape played in forging confessional identities and in reconfiguring social memory, and demonstrates how it became a battleground in which bitter struggles about the significance of the medieval Christian and pagan past were waged. In the process, it offers an illuminating new perspective on the origins, immediate consequences, and later repercussions of the Reformation in the British Isles, together with the complex but decisive modifications of belief and behaviour to which it gave rise.
