The essays in the volume are to say the least catholic in their approaches, deploying strands from the traditional methodologies of established disciplines as weU as from the theoretical orientations provided by Marxism, psychoanalysis, deconstraction, and iconography.

The result is a series of essays that provoke and challenge and provide diverse perspectives not only on w o m e n in Renaissance Italy but also on the Italian Renaissance and some of its protean concomitants tike humanism and individualism. It is also a volume that unlike so many collections of papers, delivers precisely what thetitlepromises. W e might say of the Church of England what Samuel Johnson pronounced of a dog walking on its hind legs, that we admire it not because it is done well, but because it is done at all.
In this comprehensively incisive survey of cunent writing on English religious life , encompassing the 'political' Reformation, the theological conflict and the unresolved question of voluntary religion, Diarmaid MacCulloch writes as an ordained Anglican whose heroes are the nonconforming bishop, John Hooper, and the presbyterian organiser, John Field.

H e appreciates the Church's achievement in squaring within a national body the circle of God's few Elect. Yet his perspective highlights official failure to keep up with Continental reformed theology after the s and the unwananted survival of a Catholic structure thwarting sincere Protestant attempts at internal reform.
Eventually that anested development produced its own apologists: his parenthetical villains John Whitgift and Richard Bancroft, dancing to the tune struck by the crypto-papist Sir Christopher Hatton. Inevitably Collinsonian in outline, the individual detailed shading of this 'political' discussion leads into an unusually clear analysis of English responses to put them no higher to shifting Continental theological influences.
The Later Reformation in England 1547-1603
Zwingli's Zurich receives its due beside Geneva. Beginning with the chronically Reviews eclectic Cranmer, MacCulloch progresses through a discriminating assessment of Calvin's restricted impact upon the English, towards a balanced appreciation of the Puritan tradition as firmly within the Elizabethan mainstream. In perhaps the most accessible short summary available of the debates between covenanters and 'proto-Arminians' over edification, predestination, and salvation, MacCulloch alone justifies the purchase price, and rounds it off with a sound discussion of the partial creation of a reformed church leadership, law, and ministry within a structure less reformed than the Roman Catholic by MacCulloch's ability to summarise the cunent state of historiographical play on these issues, and his carefulness in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of arguments from which he dissents, is fully stretched in the final section on the hotly debated c o m m o n reception of the Reformation.
This question, like the earlier debate over 'Puritanism' which spawned it, is unlikely to be resolved to anyone's satisfaction, since it will inevitably metamorphose into still newer areas of enquiry. But, meanwhile, we have this discriminating summary.

About this product Product Information The 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.
