No period in British history today retains more resonance and mystery than the sixteenth century. The leading figures of the time have become almost mythical, and the terrors and grandeurs of Tudor Britain have resonance with even the least historically minded readers. Above all Brigden sees the key to the Tudor world as religion - the new world of Protestantism and its battle with the the old world of uniform Catholicism. This great religious rent in the fabric of English society underlies the savage violence and turbulence of the period - from Henry VIII's break with Rome to the overwhelming threat of the Spanish Armada. 'NEW WORLDS, LOST WORLDS' is a startlingly atmospheric tour de force.

About the Author:

Susan Brigden is Fellow and Tutor in Modern History at Lincoln College, Oxford.

Review:

"* "Susan Brigden has produced a highly readable, compulsive work that will surely take its place amongst the chief secondary sources for the period" Alison Weir * "This is history in the best sense, a doorway flung wide to a whole century of our past, an all-embracing panorama which sweeps the reader along... an extraordinary achievement written by somebody who unashamedly believes that history has a place not just in the academic's study but in the wider world of everyman". - Sir Roy Strong."
