Customer Review

on 16 August 2009
Duffy"s new book is a superb interpretation and explanation of a very controversial period in English history.The persecution,which he does not condone,in combination with a pastoral approach by the bishops was achieving its purpose, the eradication of Protestantism.Some of their methods,etc, were adopted by the Council of Trent.Mary died prematurely and Elizabeth swept it all away in a matter of months.He handles the fires of his title with delicacy and empathy so in that sense Mary and Pole too,remain no less Bloody despite his nuanced interpretation.The book dispels many myths about the revival of Catholicism in Mary,s reign.
