Peter Marshall's sweeping new history-the first major overview for general readers in a generation argues that sixteenth-century England was open to ideas of reform in various competing guises. King Henry VIII wanted an orderly, uniform Reformation, but his actions opened a Pandora's Box from which pluralism and diversity flowed and rooted themselves in English life. With sensitivity to individual experience as well as masterfully synthesizing historical and institutional developments, Marshall frames the perceptions and actions of peoplel, from monarchs and bishops to ordinary families and ecclesiastics, against a backdrop of profound change that altered the meanings of religion itself. This history reveals what was really at stake in the overthrow of Catholic culture and the reshaping of the English Church.
