Description

The Reformation which engulfed England and Europe in the sixteenth century was one of the most highly-charged, bloody and transformative periods in their history, and has remained one of the most contested. In this dazzling book, Diarmaid MacCulloch explores a turbulent and endlessly fascinating era.

‘A masterly take on the Reformation … absorbing and compelling, full of insights’ Linda Hogan, Irish Times

‘One of our very best public historians … as this collection triumphantly confirms, MacCulloch writes authoritatively and engagingly on a remarkably diverse range of topics in the history of Christian culture’ Peter Marshall, Literary Review

‘Written with elegance and sometimes donnish wit … he wears his learning lightly’ Robert Tombs, The Times

‘Dazzling … prodigiously learned … MacCulloch has a gift for explaining complicated things simply’ Jack Scarisbrick, Catholic Herald

Publisher Review

MacCulloch is ... able to write authoritatively and engagingly on a remarkably diverse range of topics in the history of Christian culture and thought. -- Peter Marshall * Literary Review * All Things Made New is a serious book on a serious subject. It is written with elegance and sometimes donnish wit -- Robert Tombs * The Times * MacCulloch not only brings a lifetime's learning to bear on his subject, but writes with vigour, empathy and wit ... about identity and memory, about the importance of myths and why historians need to challenge them. -- Malcolm Gaskill * Financial Times *
