'Heretics and Believers' with Peter Marshall
Tue 30 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:00 BST
At 6.30pm on 30th May, join Peter Marshall at Heffers as he gives a talk based on his new history of the English Reformation, Heretics and Believers.
About the book: Peter Marshall's sweeping new history - the first major overview for general readers in a generation - argues that sixteenth-century England was a society neither desperate for nor allergic to change, but one open to ideas of "reform" in various competing guises. With sensitivity to individual experience as well as masterfully synthesizing historical and institutional developments, Marshall frames the perceptions and actions of people great and small, from monarchs and bishops to ordinary families and ecclesiastics, against a backdrop of profound change that altered the meanings of "religion" itself. This engaging history reveals what was really at stake in the overthrow of Catholic culture and the reshaping of the English Church.
Heretics and Believers will be available to purchase at the event with a discount on the usual RRP of £25, and Peter will be signing copies after his talk.
