Roger Turvey and Keith Randell

A Hodder Education Publication

This title analyzes the political and religious developments during this period. It begins by examining the personality and role of Henry VIII and the rise and fall of Wolsey. It then goes on to examine the Henrician Reformation, the break with Rome, and the dissolution of the monasteries. After assessing the effectiveness of Henry's reign, the subsequent reigns of Edward VI and Mary I are evaluated, with a concluding section providing an overview of the changes to church and state in this period. Throughout the book, key dates, terms, and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips written by examiners for all exam specifications provide the opportunity to develop exam skills.
