Synopses & Reviews
This delightful book offers a rare glimpse of life in a remote sixteenth-century English village during the dramatic changes of the Reformation.
In the 50 years between 1530 and 1580, England moved from being a lavishly Catholic country to being a Protestant nation. Exploring Morebath, a remote and tiny sheep-farming village on Exmoor, this work offers a window into a rural world in crisis as the Reformation progressed.
