Violence, Religion and Ethnicity

One of the most powerful pieces I have read on violence and religion is an essay by Brian Sandberg titled, Beyond Encounters: Religion, Ethnicity, and Violence in the Early Modern Atlantic World, 1492-1700. It is fairly short, twenty-three pages and packed with expanded information about religious violence that many of us have intuited but now have confirmation because of his rigorously researched essay. My dream is to one day write a similar essay covering 1700 to our current times.

The essay can be found at:
