This chapter is based on a sample of over 700 religious works first published between 1530 and 1700, which appear to have passed through at least five editions in thirty years. It discusses the rationale and method of constructing this sample of best-sellers and steady sellers, as well as some of its broader characteristics, such as the numerical preponderance of sales of officially sponsored works over those of unofficial ones, and of consensual and edifying works over polemical and prophetic ones. The chapter also describes some of the salient characteristics of and changes in the larger categories in the sample, such as sermons and treatises.

Keywords:   publications, bestsellers, steady sellers, sampling, religious works
