The Stripping of the Altars: Traditional Religion in England, 1400-1580

Paperback

Price: $22.00

Overview

This prize-winning account of the pre-Reformation church recreates lay people’s experience of religion, showing that late-medieval Catholicism was neither decadent nor decayed, but a strong and vigorous tradition. For this edition, Duffy has written a new introduction reflecting on recent developments in our understanding of the period.
