Reviews

'... a distinguished and important book ... it throws a flood of light on to one of the golden ages of English preaching.' Church Times 'This is a wonderful resource and will be of great assistance to any scholar who wishes to explore the religious, ecclesiastical and political history of this period.' Paregon '... a remarkably fine study.' William Lamont, English Historical Review '... rich book, full of intriguing details about court preaching. The book skilfully combines institutional history with an informed reading of sermon texts and mixes social and political with literary analysis. The book is very well written while maintaining the highest standards of scholarship in terms of references to original sources as well as to secondary literature. It is a compact study which historians about English court culture around 1600 will use for a long time to come ... One could only wish that other historians would take up this lead to examine other European courts in this perspective.' D'Histoire Ecclesiastique
