"Good historical writing is a rare commodity, and it is a pleasure to meet it in Claire Cross's new book." (The Tablet)

Book Description

This captivating volume provides an account of the rivalry between the two kingdoms of Church & State between the years 1450 & 1660. It shows how the division of Church & State was challenged by the laities insistence on their right to choose not only between different systems of Church government, but also between different forms of religious belief.

Format: Paperback
Claire Cross is obviously an intelligent woman. She uses words and phrases appropriate to the content, but that is obviously geared towards the professional or academic reader. I first tried reading this book a year ago when my understanding of the content was naught. Frusturated, I left the book on the shelves until recently, when I revisited it and understood it for what it is worth. Armchair Historians would benefit in passing this book by.
Cross does an excellent job of explaining how the common people of England began to change theit spiritual thinking from that of the dictated Catholic Church to the free and open Prodestant Church. She focuses on aspects such as litarcy, the printing press, faith of the monarchs and general public opinion. From Luther to Lollards and beyond, this book does a fair job of explaining the phenomonon that is the Reformation.
