Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Richard Nix, the bishop who presided over the medieval diocesan structure from 1501 until his death in 1535. By the time of his death, the destruction of the old order was already occurring, and despite his attempts to dissipate all of his wealth in charities through the diocese, the Duke of Norfolk successfully thwarted all of his plans. This chapter also discusses several of his efforts during his tenure as bishop. The impact of his three decades in East Anglia outlasted his death, through the influence that he wielded over his associates and protégés.
