Abstract:

"The boy-king Edward VI, last of the male Tudors, died while still a teenager, his plans for England's future soon to be overturned by his half-sister Mary. Yet his reign has a significance out of all proportion to its six-year span. During its brief course, he spearheaded a religious revolution which propelled England into the heart of the Protestant Reformation, letting loose an explosive new form of Christianity, the Church of England, and the Book of Common Prayer." "In this illustrated book, Diarmaid MacCulloch illuminates the significance of Edward's turbulent and neglected reign. He takes a fresh look at the life and beliefs of the young king and of the ruthless politicians who jostled for power around him. He analyses the single-minded strategy of the Protestant Revolution, and assesses the support it enjoyed among the people of England. MacCulloch describes the crisis of 1549, when nationwide unrest dividing the government and the people brought about the overthrow of the King's charismatic uncle and Lord Protector, the Duke of Somerset."--Jacket.
