Two of the sermons in this edition were preached at Paul's Cross, a public meeting place close by the old church of St Paul's in London. A brief history is given of the increasing importance of the Cross as an instrument of state propaganda, culminating in the use made of it by Thomas Cromwell to promote the cause of the king's divorce.
