What was the place of prayer in the early modern world? What did it look and sound like in those centuries? How did the activities, expressions, and texts of prayer bind disparate peoples together or create friction within communities? What roles did prayer play in intercultural contact, including violence, conquest, and resistance?
 
These crucial questions—and many more—are answered in Early Modern Prayer. This volume of essays shows how we can we use prayers of the early modern era, roughly 1500 to1800, to more deeply analyze and understand the people, politics, and cultures of the time.
