- Publisher Cardinal Wolsey was Henry VIII's chief minister for fourteen years.

This lavishly illustrated book combines essays by eleven experts with a broad introduction to examine every aspect of Wolsey's career. It sets him in his English and European context as a politician, international and domestic statesman, ecclesiastical reformer and power-broker, and also as patron of the arts. This rounded appreciation of the range and scale of Wolsey's activities accounts easily for his dramatic impact on his contemporaries, and provides a fuller and fairer judgement on his achievements and historical significance.
