Scholarship on religious printed images during the English Reformation (1535-1603) has generally focused on a few illustrated works and has portrayed this period in England as a predominantly non-visual religious culture. The combination of iconoclasm and Calvinist doctrine have led to a misunderstanding as to the unique ways that English Protestants used religious printed images. Building on recent work in the history of the book and print studies, this book analyzes the widespread body of religious illustration, such as images of God the Father and Christ, in Reformation England, assessing what religious beliefs they communicated and how their use evolved during the period. The result is a unique analysis of how the Reformation in England both destroyed certain aspects of traditional imagery as well as embraced and reformulated others into expressions of its own character and identity.

About the Author:

David J. Davis, Ph.D. (2009) in History, University of Exeter, is Assistant Professor in History at Houston Baptist University. He has published several articles and reviews on the English Reformation and early modern print culture.

Review:

"Seeing Faith ... presents a well-constructed and well-illustrated survey which draws on a wide range of contemporary sources. It ... successfully probes a sizeable subject which should be enjoyed by readers in a number of fields."
Margaret Aston. In: Print Quarterly, Vol. 32, No. 3 (2015), pp. 315-317.

"Davis has written an excellent book, dealing with a subject full of pitfalls with care and obvious academic integrity."
Andrew A. Chibi, England. In: Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. 44, No. 4 (2013), pp. 1078-1080.

"this book brings together important evidence that the desire for visual images continued into the Reformation."
James A. Knapp, Loyola University Chicago. In: Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 67, No. 1 (Spring 2014), pp. 300-301.

"The monograph is well written and throws numerous shafts of light on specific cases and on wider issues such as the debate on 'iconophobia'."
Ian Green, University of Edinburgh. In: Catholic Historical Review, Vol. 100, No. 1 (2014), pp. 148-149.
