Product Description


'In Patrick Collinson's From Cranmer to Sancroft, two archbishops stand as stern-faced alpha and omega for a collection of essays written by the preeminent historian of early modern religion in England. Those clerical bookends are apt, for Collinson is interested in trajectories in beginnings and perhaps, in the case of English Christianity, ends. John Bossy once famously wrote of Elizabethan Catholicism that it was "a progress from inertia to inertia in three generations,'and Collinson, in homage, states that Protestant dissent in early modern East Anglia 'travels full circle from minority enthusiasm to minority enthusiasm in five or six generations' (p. 26); this volume, for its part, could be said to move from complex if weak archbishop to complex if weak archbishop, with a rich reserve of dissenters, separatists, and international Calvinists residing in between.' --Sarah Covington, Catholic Historical Review, November 2008

from the book cover 28 Aug. 2006
By S. McDonald - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The author is the leading historian of English religion in the years following the Reformation. This collection of essays ranges from Thomas Cranmer, who was burnt at the stake after repeated recantations in 1556, to William Sancroft, the only other post-Reformation archbishop of Canterbury to have been deprived of office. This work explores the complex interactions between the inclusive and exclusive tendencies in English Protestantism, focusing both on famous figures and on the individual reactions of lesser figures of the time. Two themes throughout are the importance of the Bible and the emergence of Puritanism iside the Church of England.
