Few periods of English history have been so subject to "revisionism" as that of the Tudors and Stuarts. Reformation to Revolutionoffers a concise introduction to the complex historiographical debates currently raging about politics and religion in early modern England.

The traditional version of early modern religion and politics as a "high road" to Civil War was wonderfully satisfying to students seeking long-term causes of great events. However, this account has been woefully undermined by later evidence and interpretations. Furthermore, revised versions offered to fill its place often differ sharply from each other and in their turn set new problems to be addressed.

This volume draws together 13 articles culled from various sources, and embraces both revisionist and counter-revisionist viewpoints. Combining controversial works on both politics and religion, it provides a comprehensive look at Tudor as well as Stuart England. Reformation to Revolutionincludes also a helpful glossary, explanatory headnotes and suggestions for further reading.

Bringing together recent evidence and traditional sources, these carefully edited essays offer a broader understanding of this transformative era of English history.
