In this wide-ranging book, Professor Eamon Duffy explores the broad sweep of the English Reformation, and the ways in which that Reformation has been written about. Tracing the fraught history of religious change in Tudor England, and the retellings of that history to shape a protestant national identity, once again he emphasizes the importance of the study of late medieval religion and material culture for our understanding of this most formative and fascinating of eras. Getting to grips with the misconceptions, discontinuities and dilemmas which have dogged the history of Tudor religion, he traces the lived experience of Catholicism in an age of upheaval: from what it meant to be a Catholic in early Tudor England; through the nature of militant Catholicism at the height of the conflict; to the after-life of Tudor Catholicism and the ways in which the 'old religion' was remembered and spoken about in the England of Shakespeare. Duffy writes at all times with grace, elegance and wit as he questions prejudices and myths about the Reformation, to demonstrate that the truth about the past is never pure nor simple.

Published to mark the 500th anniversary of the events of 1517, Reformation Divided explores the impact in England of the cataclysmic transformations of European Christianity in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The religious revolution initiated by Martin Luther is usually referred to as 'The Reformation', a tendentious description implying that the shattering of the medieval religious foundations of Europe was a single process, in which a defective form of Christianity was replaced by one that was unequivocally benign, 'the midwife of the modern world'. The book challenges these assumptions by tracing the ways in which the project of reforming Christendom from within, initiated by Christian 'humanists' like Erasmus and Thomas More, broke apart into conflicting and often murderous energies and ideologies, dividing not only Catholic from Protestant, but creating deep internal rifts within all the churches which emerged from Europe's religious conflicts. The book is in three parts: In 'Thomas More and Heresy', Duffy examines how and why England's greatest humanist apparently abandoned the tolerant humanism of his youthful masterpiece Utopia, and became the bitterest opponent of the early Protestant movement. 'Counter-Reformation England' explores the ways in which post-Reformation English Catholics accommodated themselves to a complex new identity as persecuted religious dissidents within their own country, but in a European context, active participants in the global renewal of the Catholic Church. The book's final section 'The Godly and the Conversion of England' considers the ideals and difficulties of radical reformers attempting to transform the conventional Protestantism of post-Reformation England into something more ardent and committed. In addressing these subjects, Duffy shines new light on the fratricidal ideological conflicts which lasted for more than a century, and whose legacy continues to shape the modern world.

This intelligent and richly resourced collection, drawn together by Professor Eamon Duffy, brings together beautiful and memorable prayers and hymns from a wide range of sources. This is not a mere anthology of prayers, but rather a comprehensive guide to praying the big things of life and faith, using words with resonance and eloquence to convey a Catholic Christianity that stretches across Eastern and Western traditions, Orthodox as well as Latin Catholic. It offers guidance on the basics of the faith: how to prepare for confession, how to say the rosary, how to make the stations of the cross, material for saying morning and night prayers. This book is the result of Eamon Duffy's own deep devotional life throughout his distinguished academic career and will be deeply valued.

The reign of Mary Tudor has been remembered as an era of sterile repression, when a reactionary monarch launched a doomed attempt to reimpose Catholicism on an unwilling nation. Above all, the burning alive of more than 280 men and women for their religious beliefs seared the rule of “Bloody Mary” into the protestant imagination as an alien aberration in the onward and upward march of the English-speaking peoples. In this controversial reassessment, the renowned reformation historian Eamon Duffy argues that Mary's regime was neither inept nor backward looking. Led by the queen's cousin, Cardinal Reginald Pole, Mary’s church dramatically reversed the religious revolution imposed under the child king Edward VI. Inspired by the values of the European Counter-Reformation, the cardinal and the queen reinstated the papacy and launched an effective propaganda campaign through pulpit and press. Even the most notorious aspect of the regime, the burnings, proved devastatingly effective. Only the death of the childless queen and her cardinal on the same day in November 1558 brought the protestant Elizabeth to the throne, thereby changing the course of English history.

A thorough analysis of the Reformation, examining its roots through its greater European influences and focusing on what it meant to the individual Christian of that day There are many sound histories of the Reformation in the old style with its preference for ideas and theologians. Taking a new approach, this guide shows how it came to the individual Christian and what it meant. It analyzes whether--and why--Reformation teaching was or was not accepted, and looks at how it changed lives--with particular reference to the parish church, belief, and commitment. The author focuses largely on Britain but does not ignore European experience, and in the second part of the book looks at questions such as Why was there a reformation? How did it happen? What did it achieve? and Does it matter?

The Church at Worship is a series of documentary case studies of specific worshiping communities from around the world and throughout Christian history — case studies that can inform and enrich worship practices today. In Lifting Hearts to the Lord Karin Maag brings together a wealth of primary sources to examine worship as it was taught and practiced in John Calvin’s Geneva. Enhanced with Maag’s introductions and numerous marginal notes, this volume covers the period from 1541 to 1564, capturing both Calvin’s signal contribution to Reformation worship and the voices of ordinary Genevans as they navigated — and fought about — changes in their worship. Some of the primary materials included here: · Selections from John Calvin’s Scripture commentaries and sermons dealing with worship · Pages from the Genevan Psalter and service book · Historical maps and illustrations of Geneva and its churches · Genevan city council edicts and ordinances on worship · Excerpts from letters, eyewitness accounts of Reformation worship in Geneva, and consistory records
