View all copies of this ISBN edition:

First published in 1967 and now available in paperback, this is an authoritative and revealing study of an important yet relatively unexamined force in English history. The Elizabethan Puritan Movement arose from discontent with the religious settlement of 1559 and the desire among many of the clergy and laity for a further reformation. The more radical wished to change the structure of the Church, substituting a presbyterian order for episcopacy. They became, in fact, a revolutionary movement whose clandestine organization and agitation through parliament constituted a serious threat to the state.

About the Author:

Patrick Collinson is at University of Cambridge.


"[A] masterly work. A must for all libraries."--Choice

"Dr. Collinson has a quality, rather rare in ecclesiastical historians, of humor. The erudition and detail of his work are enlivened by wit and irony, which does much to lighten a somewhat academic study."--The Economist

"Excellent text, attractive presentation, good affordable price."--K.S. Sawyer, McCormick Theological Seminary

"This work is the great standard in the field of Tudor history. It is one of the most important works for students to know. It is profound yet lucid. It has influenced many historians and scholars since its first publication."--Susan Wabuda, Fordham University
