Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good, even-handed account  Feb 6, 2006
Though little remembered today, Ernest Belfort Bax (1854-1925) was highly influential in his time. A confirmed socialist, he became an early student of Karl Marx, and was instrumental in bringing the Marxist and materialist ideas of history to the English-speaking world. This book, which was first published in 1903, is actually the third book in a trilogy that examined the social side of the Reformation in Germany; the first two books being German Society at the Close of the Middle Ages (1894), and The Peasants War in Germany (1899).

In this book, the author briefly examines the origin of the Anabaptist movement in the mystical and political movements of the Middle Ages. Then, the author moves into an in-depth explanation of early Anabaptist doctrines and practices, and into their history, culminating in their seizure of the German city of Münster in 1633, their ultimate defeat, and then their subsequent development.

Overall, I found this to be a fascinating account of the events surrounding the Anabaptist theocracy in Münster. Most books on this subject rely heavily on the accounts left by Catholic observers, who had good reason to *not* provide an impartial look at the events. Mr. Bax, on the other hand, goes to great lengths to get past the hostile reports, and show just what did happen and why. Do not get me wrong, this is not a pro-Anabaptist whitewash of the events, but an even-handed look at just what did happen.

Now, as for Mr. Bax's Marxist views, they do intrude here and there in the narrative, but in fact the author does not use this book as a springboard to preach his worldview. In fact, Mr. Bax is much more restrained than many modern Marxists would be in expressing his political beliefs.

So, if you are interested in a good, even-handed account of what happened in the Anabaptist theocracy of Münster, then this is the book for you. I found it to be fascinating and highly informative, and not a dry account (like you would expect from a book from that era). I highly enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it.
