Studies of the English Reformation have tended either to emphasise the vitality of traditional religious culture, or to shift the focus to the reigns of Elizabeth and the early Stuarts. As a result the men and women who once seemed central to the story, those who became Protestants in the early and middle decades of the sixteenth century, have tended to be marginalised. These essays draw attention to those critical early years, and to the importance of the evangelical movement in the making of England's religious revolution. By considering themes such as conversion and martyrdom, gender and authority, printing and propaganda, and the long shadow of medieval religious culture, the authors show early English Protestantism to have been a complex and many-headed movement. Rather than assuming the onward march of Protestantism, the essays reveal the unpredictable and deeply-contested process by which an English Protestant identity came to be formed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It shows just how varied and kaleidoscopic the English Reformation was, from a Protestant point of view; and, with imagination and erudition, it succeeds in restoring Protestants to what was once understood as their Reformation.' Stephen Alford, Church Times
'Peter Marshall and Alec Ryrie's superb collection of essays could not have come at a better time.' The Tablet
'... stimulating set of essays ... we have here a volume that will be of immense value to historians ...' Journal of Ecclesiastical History
"This collection appeals not only to the Tudor specialist, but also to readers of social and religious history. But the greatest recommendation for The Beginnings of English Protestantism is that it serves as a vital counterpoint to the recent trends of revisionist history, illustrating the strength and depth of early English evangelism alongside the celebrated continuance of traditional religion." Janice Liedl, Laurentian University, Canadian Journal of History
"This is a superb collection of essays, opening up a number of new avenues for exploring the spiritual foundations of the English Reformation." Norman Jones, Utah State University, Anglican and Episcopal History
"...serious students of the sixteenth century will deepen their understanding of the early English Reformation by careful study of one or more of these essays." Albion
"A valuable and highly recommended addition to the literature on Germany's role in the outbreak of World War I." H-GERMAN
"Throws needed light on the crucial period of early Reformation history." H-NET
"[A] valuable study." Bibliotheque d'Humanisme & Renaissance
