Thomas Cranmer: Churchman and Scholar (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Thomas Cranmer lived at a time of profound ideological and ecclesiastical change, and his continuing legacy as England's first Protestant Archbishop and liturgical reformer has placed his reputation at the mercy of partisan positions on both sides of the Reformation divide. This volume, enlarged and expanded from papers presented at a conference marking the 500th anniversary of Cranmer's birth, aims to shed new light on its subject, placing him firmly in his 16th-century context. The ideological background to his work is addressed by papers examining his theological writings, from his early years in the European movement of religious change, and by a consideration of Cranmer's library (as it survives today) as a potential resource for the study of his intellectual background and development, and of writers that may have influenced him. Cranmer's career is followed through a study of the preachers he patronized, and their role in encouraging reform; by studies of Cranmer's own work as a reformer in schools and universities; and through an exploration of relations between Crown and See during his Archbishopric.

A third theme, Cranmer and the reform of worship and spirituality, emerges from study of his liturgical composition (and its European intellectual context), and his campaign in the Canterbury diocese against popular religion. An appendix includes source material relating to Cranmer and his career.
