Description

Edward VI died a teenager in 1553, yet his brief reign would shape the future of the nation, unleashing a Protestant revolution that propelled England into the heart of the Reformation. This dramatic account takes a fresh look at one of the most significant and turbulent periods in English history. ‘A challenging, elegant and persuasive biography of an unjustly neglected king’ Jerry Brotton, author of This Orient Isle’MacCulloch puts the young Edward at the centre of the action … as this excellent and lively study shows, his ghost continues to haunt the history of Anglicanism’ Sunday Times ‘This is Reformation history as it should be written, not least because it resembles its subject matter: learned, argumentative, and, even when mistaken, never dull’ Eamon Duffy, author of The Stripping of the Altars’One of the best historians writing in English today’ Sunday Telegraph
