Too many errors,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saints, Sacrilege and Sedition: Religion and Conflict in the Tudor Reformations (Hardcover)
The essays collected in this volume are consistently interesting, grounded in good research, and open out new vistas on the period. But the book is littered with scores of typos, spelling mistakes, and misquotations. Evidently no one bothered to copy-edit or proof-read it. Shame!

We can speculate about the motives, but you have pointed out the results.
