Editorial Reviews

Review

'[Lowe's] work is worth reading, as both a local study and a fresh contribution to the debate about the nature and success of the Reformation.' Church Times 'Recommended.' Choice 'This is a study rich in material for fruitful comparisons with other areas of the country.' Northern History 'The heady mixture of religion, politics, the economy and social ambition is the subject of this well-researched and detailed study that looks at a part of England that, although not at the forefront of the Reformation, has attracted quite a bit of interest from historians in recent years.' Ecclesiastical History '... this is an interesting, well-written book that provides useful detailed material on both town and countryside. Hopefully, Lowe can be encouraged to write a comparative study of the English urban Reformation in the future.' Catholic Historical Review 'The book is attractively designed and printed, with two dozen well-chosen illustrations. It is a valuable addition to a splendid series.' David Cressy, Church History "This is a careful and well researched work, which sheds light on a neglected aspect of the English Reformation.' Archiv fur Reformationsgeschichte 'Ben Lowe paints a detailed picture of government, business and urban politics in late medieval Gloucester, analyses how the religious community worked pre-Reformation, and provides an account of the county's leading gentry... The book is strong in stressing how the turbulent times must have felt to people, good on the complexity of motives for change, and sensitive in showing how that was mediated by a strong sense of 'stewardship' regarding property, education and care of the poor.' Ecclesiology Today '... Lowe has provided us with more than just an account of reform in Gloucester. It is an illustration of how the pervasive, often subtle, motivations and adaptations of core values coincided and interwove with Henrician and Edwardine religious change, making reform well suited to men of substance in Gloucester and its environs.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'This is a work of sound scholarship. The range of sources is comprehensive. Sources of information are presented helpfully in footnotes... The work of the men who shaped the Reformation in Gloucester is brought into full view.' Transactions of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society 'He [Lowe] does not hesitate to challenge the interpretations of earlier studies and uses solid evidence to support his own conclusions. In short, his work is a fresh contribution to the ongoing debate about religion and society during the course of the English Reformation.' Fides et Historia
