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.

Religion in the reign of Henry VIII is a much studied, indeed some might argue .

Religion in the reign of Henry VIII is a much studied, indeed some might argue over-studied, field. This book has all the advantages of being a converted doctoral thesis with comparatively few of the pitfalls. The seven chapters are extensively detailed, but that detail is set within such a well-structured and readable framework that the reader is never left floundering.

Cambridge Studies in Early Modem British History. This new study by Alec Ryrie challenges such a simple characterization. Cambridge, England: Cambridge University Press, 2003. Instead, Ryrie meticulously draws a portrait of English evangelicals who could adapt and conform to a regime whose religious policies were, in many ways, ambiguous. For moderate evangelicals, this "mixed message" allowed them to continue both their loyalty to Henry, and their hope that reform was not being stopped, only slowed.
