Jeg har kjøpt mine to første bøker av Peter Marshall, historieprofessor, som Amazon omtaler slik:
Peter Marshall, a native of the Orkney Islands, has since 2006 been Professor of History at the University of Warwick, and is a leading expert in the history of the Reformation and its impact in the British Isles and beyond. He is a winner of the Harold J. Grimm Prize for Reformation History …
Den første boka jeg skal lese av ham heter: Reformation England 1480-1642, og Amazon beskriver den slik:
Reformation England 1480-1642 provides a clear and accessible narrative account of the English Reformation, explaining how historical interpretations of its major themes have changed and developed over the past few decades, where they currently stand – and where they seem likely to go.
A great deal of interesting and important new work on the English Reformation has appeared recently, such as lively debates on Queen Mary’s role, work on the divisive character of Puritanism, and studies on music and its part in the Reformation. The spate of new material indicates the importance and vibrancy of the topic, and also of the continued need for students and lecturers to have some means of orientating themselves among its thickets and by-ways. This revised edition takes into account new contributions to the subject and offers the author’s expert judgment on their meaning and significance.
