Abstract:

No period in British history has more resonance and mystery than the sixteenth century. New Worlds, Lost Worlds brings the atmosphere and events of this great epoch to life. Exploring the underlying religious motivations for the savage violence and turbulence of the period - from Henry VIII's break with Rome to the overwhelming threat of the Spanish Armada - Susan Brigden investigates the actions and influences of such near-mythical figures as Elizabeth I, Thomas More, Bloody Mary, and Walter Raleigh. New Worlds, Lost Worlds provides a superb introduction to arguably one of the most important and intriguing periods in the history of the western world. -- Book cover.
