The Reformation period has long been seen as crucial in the development of the society and institutions of the English-speaking peoples, whilst the study of the Tudor and Stuart era stands at the heart of most courses in English history. But while the influence of the Book of Common Prayer and the King James Version of the Bible created the modern English language, there has been no collection of contemporary documents available to show how the momentous social and political changes took place. In his major and comprehensive collection, Gerald Bray has compiled a vast range of documents, covering the period of the English Reformation from 1526 to 1700. The book contains many texts that have been relatively inaccessible until now, along with others more widely known. In addition, the book provides a selection of highly informative appendixes, including comparative tables of the different articles and confessions, showing their mutual relationships and dependence. Containing fifty-eight documents covering all the main Statutes, Injunctions and Orders, Prefaces to prayer books, Biblical translations and other relevant texts, Documents of the English Reformation provides an invaluable resource for students, and a useful aide memoire for scholars in the fields of theology, the English Church, and late medieval and early modern English history. See the Complete Listing of Documents here.
