"Reformation" is a English-language journal for the publication of original research in scholarship of the Reformation era. It is published annually under the aegis of the Tyndale Society. Volume 7 of the journal concentrates primarily on the progress of the English Reformation. Articles include: a study of Tyndale's knowledge of Hebrew, shedding light on his attempt to produce an accurate translation of the Bible by returning to the original sources; a painstaking and incisive analysis of Henry VIII's religious policy in the last decade of his reign, showing how vital his concept of the royal supremacy was to the functioning of both church and regime; a reconstruction of the events leading up to the martyrdom of John Philpot, showing how John Foxe deliberately constructed one of the most important martyrs represented in his Acts and Monuments of the Christian Church by carefully selecting and supplementing the evidence at his disposal; a consideration of the Marprelate tracts, the most important "Puritan" controversy of late Elizabethan England where close reading of the tracts reveals them to be far more skilfully constructed than is generally assumed, showing how the anonymous authors were aware of the possibilities of printed texts as a medium of debate and propaganda; and an analysis of the status of Jerome's Vulgate Bible during the Counter-Reformation. The collection also includes John N. King's note on Milton's use of personal insult in his attacks on the English bishops demonstrating how a good Reformation controversialist involved the ability to belittle one's opponents as well as win the argument by more highbrow intellectual means. The volume concludes with a full guide to recent publications in the field.
