The changes brought about during the English Reformation clearly reflected the desire of the Crown, government and landed classes to reduce the political power and landed wealth of the late medieval Church. This book covers the background to the Reformation, the processes which brought about these major changes and the impact on the clergy and the general population.

The collection of essays by prominent historians of the Reformation explores the experience of religious reform in 'national context', discussing similarities and differences between the reform movements in a dozen different countries of sixteenth-century Europe. Each author provides an interpretative essay emphasising local peculiarities and national variants on the broader theme of the Reformation as a European phenomenon. The individual essays thus emphasise the local preconditions and limitations which encountered the Reformation as it spread from Germany into most of the countries of western and central Europe. Together they present a picture of the many-sided nature of the Reformation as it grew up in each 'national context'. The book includes examples of countries where the Reformation was strikingly successful, as well as those where it failed to make an impact. A final comparative essay seeks to understand the different 'Reformations' as variations on an overall theme. This volume forms part of a sequence of collections of essays which began with The Enlightenment in national context (1981) and has continued with Revolution in history (1986), Romanticism in national context (1988), Fin de siecle and its legacy (1990), The Renaissance in national context (1991), The Scientific Revolution in national context (1992), and The national question in Europe in historical context (1993). The purpose of these and other envisaged collections is to bring together comparative, national and interdisciplinary approaches to the history of great movements in the development of human thought and action.

Exploring history 1400-1900: An anthology of primary sources reaches out to the reader across an expanse of 500 years. It offers a broad sweep of history in the light of three key themes: consumers and producers; beliefs and ideologies; and state-formation. Spanning continents and genres, the selection of documents illuminates the links between concurrent events in diverse places and illustrates the legacies of important social, religious and political trends. Previously unpublished accounts and newly translated material reveal new perspectives on both familiar and less well-known events. In capturing this spectrum of human activity and endeavour the book uniquely provides insights into the daily concerns and critical debates of the day, and the opportunity to engage with primary sources as tools for the knowledge creation and critical evaluation. It will be an essential companion to a wide range of courses in historical study and an engaging read for anyone interested in researching, reviewing or relating more closely to a rich historical past.

This welcome survey breaks new ground by presenting a balanced and up-to-date account of the parallel Reformation experiences in the nations of the entire British Isles. Departing from the traditional preoccupation with the English or Scottish Reformations, the book compares and contrasts long-term developments and reactions in England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland, and places them in their broader European context. While tracing the various courses of religious change, controversy and resistance in the four neighbouring countries, Ian Hazlett also offers incisive assessments of modern research developments, setting his account against the backdrop of the changing ways of writing history, especially Church and Reformation history. The result is a book that will not only be of great value to students and the new generation of scholars in the field, but will also provide convenient and reliable access to the subject for anyone with an interest in this turbulent period of religious and intellectual history.

In this study, Robert Tittler, an expert in Marian research, provides an important reappraisal of Mary's reign - often written off as a failure. He considers whether her reign can be so easily dismissed as an unproductive interruption of the Tudor dynasty, or whether Mary's reign played a more distinctive part in this period of history.
