This new edition on the English Reformation includes a chapter placing Tudor England in a wider temporal and geographical context, which addresses some fundamental questions about the Reformation in Europe and its long-term causes; a new section on that "controversial saint" Sir Thomas More as well as one on Thomas Cromwell and Anne Boleyn; an expanded account of the reign of Edward VI and, most particularly, of the Marian Reaction. A further new chapter provides a fresh look at three important themes in the light of recent research: the influence of anticlericalism, both Catholic and Protestant, on the Reformation; the uneven spread of pre-Elizabethan Protestantism across England; and finally, the intriguing question - was the English Reformation in some sense a youth movement?
The Reformation in a wider context; late medieval religion; the Wycliffite prelude; scenes from clerical life; Lutherans and Humanists; state versus church; statutes and bibles - the Henrician Revolution; the great transfer; a balance of forces; the Reformation under Somerset; the Reformation under Northumberland; Queen Mary's contribution; three retrospective enquiries; the foundations of Elizabethan England; the residual problems; an epilogue.
