Description: Interest in the English Reformation is flourishing, and recent years have seen the publication of much important work which is not readily accessible to students and their teachers. Reformation England provides a clear and critical account of recent scholarly approaches, while at the same time retaining a narrative drive. There is a growing perception among scholars that the English (and Welsh) experienced a `Long Reformation', whose roots lie in the fifteenth century, and whose effects were still being felt well into the seventeenth. Yet general surveys of the Reformation often begin the story in 1529, and most draw to a close at some point in the sixteenth century. This book insists that to make sense of the Reformation it is necessary to adopt a less restricted view-point. The subject is not merely the changes to official doctrine and ritual initiated by Henry VIII and concluded by Elizabeth I, but a fundamental cultural transformation which arguably did more than any other process to shape the kind of society England was to become in modern times. Reformation England combines reassessment of familiar debates and topics with introductions to newer historiographical concerns: religious life before the Reformation; the early evangelical movement; aims and achievements of the Henrician, Edwardian, and Marian Reformations; meanings of `puritanism' and `catholicism' in the later sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; the nature of religious `conformity'; religious conflict and the advent of civil war. The book addresses a problem whose ramifications are still with us: why the English became divided over religion, and why, despite the efforts of a succession of governments, those divisions could not be healed.
