The Boy King: Edward VI and the Protestant Reformation

University of California Press, 2002 - Всего страниц: 283
"The boy king Edward VI, last of the male Tudors, died while still a teenager, his plans for England's future soon to be overturned by his half-sister Mary. Yet his reign has a significance all out of proportion to its six-year span. During his brief course, he spearheaded a religious revolution that propelled England into the heart of the Protestant Reformation, letting loose an explosive new form of Christianity, the Church of England, and the Book of Common Prayer. Diarmaid MacCulloch illuminates the significance of Edward's turbulent and neglected reign and takes a fresh look at the life and beliefs of the young king and of the ruthless politicians who jostled for power around him." [Back cover].
