Reformation Views of Church History

Glanmor Williams

$75.00

Paperback
"In this work, Glanmor Williams presents different views of Church History propagated by English writers during the Reformation. Almost as soon as Luther came to communicate his sensibilities to others he began to realise that defenders of orthodoxy would denounce them as an intolerably presumptuous threat on the part of a single misguided monk to fifteen hundred years of established authority in the Church." "Among those who were most glad to receive and propagate the Lutheran message was a young Englishman, William Tyndale, the outstanding English reformer of the first generation, and a major figure among English reformers of any generation. Whilst focussing on the figure of Tyndale, Williams also looks at the great impact of John Bale and John Foxe." "Williams introduces this topic by exploring the continental background, including Luther's arguments, the opponents and Luther's influence on important English authors of the sixteenth century."--BOOK JACKET.

Otherwise Christendom itself would have erred for more than a thousand years." On O
