Professor Gordon, a native of Canada, taught from 1994 to 2008 at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, where he was professor of modern history and deputy director of the St. Andrews Reformation Institute. His biography of John Calvin will appear with Yale University Press in 2009. Among his other works, The Swiss Reformation was the first comprehensive study of the subject and was named an Outstanding Publication for 2003 by Choice magazine. Clerical Reformation and the Rural Reformation examined the creation of the Protestant ministry in Zurich and its numerous parishes in the sixteenth century. Professor Gordon has edited books on the development of Protestant historical writing, the place of the dead in late-medieval and early-modern society, and the Swiss Reformer Heinrich Bullinger. He currently heads a project on the Protestant Latin Bible of the sixteenth century and is on the editorial board of two monograph series: St. Andrews Studies in Reformation History.
(Ashgate), and Zürcher Beiträge zur Reformationsgeschichte (Theologischer Verlag Zürich). His research interests range across late-medieval and early-modern religious history, in particular the Swiss and German Reformations, Bibles, devotional literature, the clergy, death and the dead, historical writing and historiography.
