The last years of Henry VIII's life, 1539-47, have conventionally been seen as a time when the king persecuted Protestants. This book argues that Henry's policies were much more ambiguous; that he continued to give support to Protestantism and that many accordingly also remained loyal to him. It also examines why the Protestants eventually adopted a more radical, oppositional stance, and argues that English Protestantism's eventual identity was determined during these years.

Book Description:

This book is about one critical but neglected phase of the early English Reformation: the last years of Henry VIII's life, 1539 47, conventionally seen as a time when the king persecuted Protestants. The book argues that Henry's policies were much more ambiguous; that he continued to give some support to Protestantism; and that many Protestants also remained loyal to the king. It also examines why they eventually adopted a more radical, oppositional stance, and argues that it was largely during these years that English Protestantism's eventual identity was determined.

Alec Ryrie is Lecturer in Modern History, University of Birmingham.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. During the last decade of Henry VIII s life, his Protestant subjects struggled to reconcile two loyalties: to their Gospel and to their king. This book tells the story of that struggle and describes how a radicalised English Protestantism emerged from it. Focusing on the critical but neglected period 1539-47, Dr Ryrie argues that these years were not the conservative reaction of conventional historiography, but a time of political fluidity and ambiguity. Most evangelicals continued to hope that the king would favour their cause, and remained doctrinally moderate and politically conformist. The author examines this moderate reformism in a range of settings - in the book trade, in the universities, at court and in underground congregations. He also describes its gradual eclipse, as shifting royal policy and the dynamics of the evangelical movement itself pushed reformers towards the more radical, confrontational Protestantism which was to shape the English identity for centuries.
