    This book is about the state of research. If the object were the Bible, it would be a book about who is commenting on it and what they're saying. It is about as interesting.

    Were somebody to suggest that the burden of this book was to prove that the English Reformation was an event utterly devoid of interest, I would not oppose him. Mr. Christopher Hill wrote provocative and interesting accounts of the same events as this book covers, and historiography ever since has been concerned with refuting, rebutting, and reducing Hill's arguments and suggestions to rubble. Mr. Hill has been successfully proven in every way wrong, and the loss has been that Reformation History is now in every way uninteresting.

    A sample paragraph: Yet again, both Wiltshire and Berkshire resembled Gloucestershire in their dependence upon their clothiers, whose mobility and social coherence helped them to propagate Reformation doctrines. The activism of this otherwise neglected area has been usefully chronicled by Mr I. T. Shield in an unpublished thesis of 1960, which deserves more attention than it has received.

    Meh! Overview of 30-year-old (mainly church) historiography of the early modern period, with a few exceptional essays (particularly Cust's).
