Product Description

Review

This second edition has been expanded and rewritten, primarily to take account of the plethora of recent research on the Reformation...it is a necessary update, as a central consideration of this textbook is how historians have interpreted - and continue to interpret - the reform process. (The coverage of the secondary works is strikingly comprehensive.)...Students will find the historiographical elements of this book useful [and] the introductions and conclusions to each chapter...[It] retains its enviable position as an indispensable and thought-proviking textbook. Times Higher Education Supplement

Format: Paperback
I was initially attracted to this work because of the dates - it is traditional to view 'the English Reformation' as something that happened between Henry and Elizabeth's reigns so it came as a welcome surprise to see someone locating the process before and beyond these parameters.
Once I read it I discovered it to be an excellent introduction to the key debates about the politics of religion and religious conflict in Tudor and early Stuart England. Not only was it well laid out into manageable chunks of information by period, but its discussion of the debates and the works that underly them was easy to follow and well written to boot!
All in all, this is exactly what it says on the cover - a fine introduction for students of early modern religion to the subject which they should find so useful that they will refer to it again and again. FULL MARKS!!!

A judicious survey of the issues and the controversies that have surrounded them. One or two (fairly
trivial) errors or omissions which might be corrected in a further edition.
