1825 The History of the Reformation of the Church of England
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Leather Binding
Gilbert Burnet's 'The History of the Reformation of the Church of England' provides a comprehensive account of the events and ideas that led to the establishment of the Church of England as a separate entity from the Roman Catholic Church. The work was first published in three volumes between 1679 and 1715 and is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential works on the English Reformation.
Burnet, a Scottish bishop and theologian, was an eyewitness to many of the events he describes in the book, including the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I. He draws on a wide range of sources, including official records, personal diaries, and letters, as well as his own observations and insights.
