Reviews

"'A mighty and momentous book... which reorders one's thinking about much of England's religious past.' Jack Scarisbrick, The Tablet; 'Duffy wants to show the vitality and appeal of late medieval Catholicism and to prove that it exerted a diverse and vigorous hold over the imagination and loyalty of the people up to the very moment of the Reformation. He succeeds triumphantly.' Susan Bridgen, London Review of Books; 'A magnificent scholarly achievement, a compelling read, and not a page too long.' Patricia Morrison, Financial Times; 'A landmark book in the history of the Reformation.' Ann Eljenholm Nichols, Sixteenth Century Journal; 'This book will afford enjoyment and enlightenment to layman and specialist alike. Duffy sweeps the reader along... by his lively and absorbing detail, his piercing insights, patient analysis, and his vigour in debates.' Peter Heath, Times Literary Supplement; 'Sensitively written and beautifully produced, this book represents a major contribution to the Reformation debate.' Norman Tanner, The Times; 'Deeply imaginative, movingly written, and splendidly illustrated.' Maurice Keen, The New York Review of Books"
