An extraordinarily valuable study by the doyen of Transylvanian history. Political and religious changes, fueled by the Reformation, assaulted the status-quo in European nations during the 16th Century, yet the tiny Principality of Transylvania, ruled by three separate ‘nation-estates’, ascribing simultaneously to seven separate religious allegiances, managed to embrace their ethnic and religious diversity without engaging in the ferocious religious wars plaguing Europe at that time.
