English Reformations takes a refreshing new approach to the study of the Reformation in England. Christopher Haigh's lively and readable study disproves any facile assumption that the triumph of Protestantism was inevitable, and goes beyond the surface of official political policy to explore the religious views and practices of ordinary English people. With the benefit of hindsight, other historians have traced the course of the Reformation as a series of events inescapably culminating in the creation of the English Protestant establishment. Haigh sets out to recreate the sixteenth century as a time of excitement and insecurity, with each new policy or ruler causing the reversal of earlier religious changes. This is a scholarly and stimulating book, which challenges traditional ideas about the Reformation and offers a powerful and convincing alternative analysis.

Haigh is the editor of The English Reformation Revised and author of Reformation and Resistance in Tudor Lancashire (CUP 1987, 1975)Review:
"It is a tribute to the worth of Dr. Haigh's positive evidence, as well as to his skill in debate, that on the whole the balance of probability seems usually to be on his side....It is significant that it is Dr. Haigh's view which has become the best known and has now provided what is likely to become the standard textbook."--Times Higher Education Supplement
