The present analysis, therefore, is not so much astudy in the abstractions of theology as it is a studyin ecumenism. Poissy is placed in a larger historicalbackground and the author carefully and criticallyweighs all factors which affected the chances forreligious unity. Within this larger context, he arguesthat the colloquy placed the participants at the finalcrossroads of the Reformation. When it was over theReformation was sealed and the Counter-Reformation signaled.

Nugent's approach is revisionist; his theologicalorientation is Erasmian, ecumenical, and speculative. He shows that ecumenism has been effectivelyand banefully excised from historiography andargues that it must be reintegrated into the story ofthe Reformation. Because we live in a new age ofecumenism, the author's insights and conclusionsare especially appropriate. We have now that keenand historical dimension which cannot but help illuminate contemporary life.
