Praise

Spectator
"MacCulloch's biography is formidable both in length and in learning; it has all the strengths and none of the weaknesses of academic history....This is more than just another damned, thick, square book. It demands effort to read, but that effort is abundantly rewarded. The author displays not only a mastery of intricate argumentation but also an alert eye for colourful detail....Cranmer has at last received the biography he deserves." - C. D. C. Armstrong 05/18/1996

Literary Review
"[A] massive, balanced, and without doubt enduring biography of Thomas Cranmer...thoroughly documented...Diarmaid MacCulloch points out that Cranmer has been regarded as throughout history either as a saint or villain. He leaves the reader to judge....As the foremost player in the drama of the English Reformation, Cranmer deserves the impeccable research that makes this book definitive." - Philip Caraman August 1996

Wall Street Journal
"Mr. MacCulloch...has written what amounts to an intellectual biography of a man whose most dramatic personal moments, despite the bloodletting all around him, took place in his mind and soul....He also show how Cranmer ideas powered the reforms Henry forced through a reluctant Parliament." 09/12/1996

New York Times Book Review
"...[A] lucidly written, deeply researched, and surprisingly accessible biography." - Allen D. Boyer 12/15/1996
