3.0 out of 5 stars Serious history, 2 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fires of Faith: Catholic England under Mary Tudor (Paperback)
Not being an academic or a student of history, I suppose I have got used to popular history books. Having recently read Anna Whitelock's excellent (and very readable) biography of Mary Tudor, I was drawn to Eamon's Duffy's Fires of Faith. But a word of warning: don't be too seduced by the cover design or the rather racy title. This is a serious, academic defence of Mary and her regime based on a series of lectures. Duffy's prose is very hard going in places and he is not blessed with the common touch. Having said that, I quite enjoyed it and learned a lot.
