About the Author

Gary W. Jenkins is Van Gorden Professor in History at Eastern University, USA.


'There is a great deal to praise in this book. Jenkins's analyses are perceptive, nuanced, and convincing: he does more than any previous author in assembling a portrait of Jewel and his thought that encompasses all aspects of Jewel's life and work.' Renaissance Quarterly 'This book is a provocative and insightful study of a much neglected and pivotal character in the English church, and the tensions and paradoxes exposed lays the ground for further fruitful research.' Themelios 'This is a substantive, authoritative and deeply considered study with over forty pages of appendices, bibliography and indices, in many ways much deeper and more considered than previous works on Jewel... Jenkins work is set to be the benchmark study on John Jewel, and provide a template for other studies of key Reformation figures: a sound methodological fusion of history and theology, and an account which should become standard reading for Reformation students in both theology and history.' The Heythrop Journal 'Jenkins's book definitely stands out: not as the standard, narrative biography most readers grew up reading, but as intellectual biography... This painstakingly researched book belongs in the libraries of seminaries and research institutions, as it is required reading for those interested in the religious and intellectual history of the 1560s and 1570s.' Anglican and Episcopal History '... a rewarding read for the student of sixteenth-century England or one intrigued by the challenges of balancing commitments to faith, community, and state.' Journal of Church and State
