    DescriptionThe English Reformation was the event which chiefly shaped English identity well into the 20th century. It made the English kingdom a self consciously Protestant state, dominating the British Isles, and boasting an established Church which eventually developed a peculiar religious agenda, Anglicanism. Although Henry VIII triggered a break with the Pope in his eccentric quest to rid himself of an inconveniently loyal wife, the Reformation soon slipped from his control, and in the reigns of his Tudor successors, it developed a momentum which made it one of the success stories of European Protestantism. This book discusses the developing Reformation in England through the later Tudor reigns: Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I. It provides a narrative of events, then discusses the ideas which shaped the English Reformation, and surveys the ways in which the English reacted to it, how far and quickly they accepted it, as well as assessing those who remained dissenters. This new edition is fully updated to take account of new material in the field that has appeared since the 1990s.

    Review quote
    'This second edition of The Later Reformation in England, 1547-1603 brings new refinements and nuances, mostly from his own research, but still a supplemented and polished version of the first version. On those grounds alone this edition is a considerable contribution to ongoing research.' - Barry Collett, University of Melbourne, Paregon 'An excellent textbook - best out on religious history of England in its period.' - Ronald Hutton, University of Bristol 'The new edition...is simply the best introduction to the latter part of the English Reformation in print.' - Malcolm Yarnell, Anglican and Episcopal History 'The Later Reformation, and invaluable short guide to a turbulent age, shows how easily great ideas go adrift and how Protestant England disappeard in disappointment and confusion.' - Dom Aidan Bellenger, The Downside Review
