Product Overview

Using fascinating first-hand evidence, Cressy describes the ritual performance of childbirth, baptism, courtship, weddings, and funerals in England from c. 1500 to 1700, and reveals how these activities changed in response to the Reformation, the Revolution, and the Restoration. The result is a vivid classic rites of passage in Tudor and Stuart England. "Should be read by all serious students of the period interested in history from the bottom up.
