The Reformation of the Landscape

Religion, Identity, and Memory in Early Modern Britain and Ireland

Alexandra Walsham

  • The first major study of the impact of religious change on the landscape of the British Isles
  • Connects the religious upheavals of the era with other cultural and intellectual trends, including the growth of antiquarianism and developments in medicine and science
  • Draws on deep and extensive research, and exploits a wide variety of printed and manuscript sources
  • Ambitious geographical and chronological range: covers Britain and Ireland in its entirety; focuses on the period 1500-1750 but extends backwards to the early medieval period and forwards into the nineteenth century
  • Richly detailed and extensively illustrated
