Abstract:

"This profoundly influential book re-examines events leading up to the Reformation and enriches our understanding of the period. It recreates lay people's experience of religion in the pre-Reformation church showing that late medieval Catholicism was neither decadent nor decayed, but was a strong and vigorous tradition, and that the Reformation represented a violent rupture from a popular and theologically respectable religious system. For this edition, Duffy has written a substantial new introduction, including a discussion of the Lollards and reflections on recent developments in Reformation studies."--Jacket.
