Despite only being 150 pages long, Harper-Bill still manages to cover a considerable amount regarding the state of the English Church, with separate chapters focussing on relations between the Crown and Papacy, the hierarchy and clergy, as well as the beliefs and devotional activities found amongst the laity. A number of relevant and insightful primary documents are included in the appendix, providing documentation of his central thesis that the English Church was not in any form of crisis requiring dramatic change let alone full-scale Reformation.
Overall, an interesting book that presents a generalized but solid defence of the credibility of the Church in England before the Reformation. For a more detailed account of this period, do look at The Stripping of the Altars: Traditional Religion in England, 1400-1580’ by Prof. Eamon Duffy.
