VINE VOICEon 18 November 2002
Ethan Shagan is to be congratulated on writing the first book of post-revisionist Reformation history.
In a direct challenge to Haigh's view of the Tudor 'juggernaut' state imposing a 'political' reformation from above on an uninterested populace, this study teases out the degree of subtle interplay between the objectives of the state and the aspirations of the 'meaner sort'.
By using concepts such as collaboration and accomodation Shagan is able to reveal the Reformation as part of the dialogue between the interests of the central authority and those of the populace generally, revealing the greater participation of 'the people' in the political process than has often been allowed.
As such it is part of an important body of recent work by scholars such as Andy Wood, Tim Harris, Steve Hindle and Alistair Bellany which is helping to illuminate Early Modern politics and society in new and exciting ways.
