Thomas Cranmer: A Life

Thomas Cranmer: A Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This prizewinning biography provides the definitive account of Thomas Cranmer, archbishop of Canterbury, architect of the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, King Henry VIII's guide through three divorces, and ultimately a martyr for his Protestant faith. English Reformation scholar Diarmaid MacCulloch draws on new manuscript sources in Britain and elsewhere to create this vivid new study — the first on Cranmer in over thirty years.

"This book looks marvelous — extremely good to read as well as being a definitive biography". — Robert Harris, The Times (London)

"This lucidly written, deeply researched and surprisingly accessible biography of the man who served Henry VIII as Archbishop of Canterbury ... ably explores both Cranmer's drive and his persistent doubts". — Allen D. Boyer, New York Times Book Review

"At last we have the truth about Archbishop Cranmer, the most controversial bigwig in the history of the English Church.... The best biography of Cranmer, sympathetic and candid about Cranmer's shortcomings". — A.L. Rowse, Evening Standard

"Definitive....An intellectual biography of a man whose most dramatic personal moments, despite the blood-letting all around him, took place in his mind and soul". — Stuart Ferguson, Wall Street Journal

Synopsis:

Thomas Cranmer was the architect of Henry VIII's unprecedented divorce and established the first stage of the reformed English church, while supplying its standard liturgy - the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. This book traces Cranmer's life from his Midlands roots to death at the stake in Oxford.
