Overview

The English Reformation was the event that chiefly shaped English identity well into the 20th century. It made the English kingdom a self-consciously Protestant state dominating the British Isles, and boasting an established Church that eventually developed a peculiar religious agenda, Anglicanism. Although Henry VIII triggered a break with the Pope in his eccentric quest to rid himself of an inconveniently loyal wife, the Reformation soon slipped from his control, and in the reigns of his Tudor successors, it developed a momentum that made it one of the success stories of European Protestantism. In this book, MacCulloch discusses the developing Reformation in England through the later Tudor reigns: Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I. He provides a narrative of events, then discusses the ideas that shaped the English Reformation, and surveys the ways in which the English reacted to it, how far and quickly they accepted It, and assesses those who remained dissenters. This new edition is fully updated to take account of new material in the field that has appeared in the last decade.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This book describes how the English reformation created a Protestant state, an established church, and a peculiar religious agenda. Updated in light of recent scholarship, this edition provides a narrative of events in the later English Reformation, with personal glimpses of the monarchs, clerics, politicians, and zealots who helped or hindered the work of reform. It then discusses the ideas which shaped this religious revolution, and argues that Anglicanism and the Church of England were unlikely outcomes for a Protestant movement with international aims. Finally, the book surveys the problems which Reformers faced in making people accept the Reformation. MacCulloch teaches church history at Oxford University. Annotation c.
