The Stripping of the Altars - Traditional Religion in England, 1400-1580, Second Edition

The Stripping of the Altars - Traditional Religion in England, 1400-1580, Second Edition Traditional Religion in England, 1400-1580, Second Edition DUFFY, Eamon

This prize-winning account of the pre-Reformation church recreates lay people's experience of religion in fifteenth-century England. Eamon Duffy shows that late medieval Catholicism was neither decadent nor decayed, but was a strong and vigorous tradition, and that the Reformation represented a violent rupture from a popular and theologically respectable religious system. For this edition, Duffy has written a new Preface reflecting on recent developments in our understanding of the period. From reviews of the first edition: "A magnificent scholarly achievement [and] a compelling read."-Patricia Morrison, Financial Times "Deeply imaginative, movingly written, and splendidly illustrated...Duffy's analysis ...carries conviction."-Maurice Keen, New York Review of Books "This book will afford enjoyment and enlightenment to layman and specialist alike."-Peter Heath, Times Literary Supplement "[An] astonishing and magnificent piece of work."-Edward T. Oakes, Commonweal
