Reformation England provides a clear and critical account of recent scholarly approaches, giving a reassessment of familiar debates and topics with introductions to newer historiographical concerns: religious life before the Reformation; the early evangelical movement; meanings of 'puritanism' and 'catholicism' in the later sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; the nature of religious 'conformity'; religious conflict and the advent of civil war.
The book addresses a problem whose ramifications are still with us: why the English became divided over religion, and why, despite the efforts of a succession of governments, those divisions could not be healed.

The chronological range is ambitious, the secondary literature covered is extraordinarily extensive and the judgements meted out are measured and sensible. The volume should become required reading for undergraduates. Ecclesiastical History
Marshall is extremely careful to disentangle the interpretative controversies which surround the reformation period from the evidence itself, and this is perhaps the most valuable aspect of his study. Archive for Reformation History
