Preview

The clergy of the three kingdoms are studied during the same years of change, 1530–1558. The focus is upon the role of the bishops and higher clergy in influencing political regimes, and on the appropriation of clerical wealth. Ordinary parish clergy are seen as largely resistant to new religious ideas, and vulnerable to lay pressures.
