The story of the Reformation needs reforming

The story of the Reformation needs reforming | Iconoclasm and Reformation | Scoop.it
The destruction of most of the libraries, music and art of England was not a
religious breakthrough but a cultural calamity
palomnik's insight:

Eamon Duffy, one of my favourite historians, explaining why the Reformation historiography we are familiar with needs to be revised. I hope this article will encourage you to seek out his wonderful volumes The Stripping of the Altars and The Voices of Morebath, both published by Yale University Press.

BBC Radio 4 - In Our Time, The Book of Common Prayer

BBC Radio 4 - In Our Time, The Book of Common Prayer | Iconoclasm and Reformation | Scoop.it

Melvyn Bragg discusses the Book of Common Prayer with

Diarmaid MacCulloch Professor of the History of the Church at the University of Oxford; Alexandra Walsham, Professor of Modern History at the University of Cambridge; Martin Palmer, Director of the International Consultancy on Religion, Education, and Culture.

In 1549, at the height of the English Reformation, a new prayer book was published containing versions of the liturgy in English. Generally believed to have been supervised by Thomas Cranmer, the Book of Common Prayer was at the centre of the decade of religious turmoil that followed, and disputes over its use were one of the major causes of the English Civil War in the 1640s. The book was revised several times before the celebrated final version was published in 1662. It is still in use in many churches today, and remains not just a liturgical text of great importance but a literary work of profound beauty and influence.
