Rezensionen
"Macek has written a perceptive study of an important aspect of sixteenth-century English history. She has dealt with a complex and many-faceted topic yet has presented the material clearly and lucidly. The result is a major contribution to Tudor ecclesiastical history." (Cecile Zinberg, The Sixteenth Century Journal)
