Altars Restored

The Changing Face of English Religious Worship, 1547-c.1700

Kenneth Fincham and Nicholas Tyacke

Altars are powerful symbols, but during the early modern period they became a religious battleground. Altars Restored examines a time when religious lives were fundamentally challenged. By looking at what happened physically in local churches, the book recaptures the experience of the ordinary parishioner in this period of religious change.
