Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0751201545, Hardcover)

This three-volume set aims to provide the most complete and scholarly study of the Reformation to date. Based on original sources and specialized secondary literature, it is intended to give a detailed and balanced assessment of the era. Volume I covers the period up to the schism under Henry VIII and the heresy of the Royal Supremacy. It examines the domestic and foreign policy problems endemic in England in 1517 and considers the numerous individual revolutions transforming daily life. Volume II describes the turbulent history of the Church of England as reorganized by Henry VIII, and analyzes the impact that this had on both government and the nation. It examines the reign of Mary I, and offers a critique of the "Book of Martyrs". The concluding volume considers the re-emergence of Protestantism in Elizabeth I's reign, focusing on the repressive penal acts and regulations of 1559 and the fate of those of both religious persuasions who refused to conform.
