Take this book with a grain of salt
The historical impact of this book is considerable: it was almost single-handedly responsible for the rise of anti-Catholicism in England. The accounts contained in this book are not intended so much to educate, as to raise the fury of the reader against the Roman Catholic Church. As an account of Protestant Reformation thought, this book is very valuable, but historical scholarship has somewhat improved since 1563, when it was first published. This book is certainly an exciting read, but think critically about it before accepting all its claims at face value.
