Lollardy and the Reformation in England An Historical Survey by James Gairdner

James Gairdner (1828-1912) was one of the foremost authorities of his day on the Tudor period. This magisterial four-volume survey (originally published 1908-1913) argues that the impetus for the English Reformation came from the Lollard movement of the late fourteenth century. A prolific researcher and editor, Gairdner devoted his career to English history, and his study is both meticulous and factually sound. His critics, however, were quick to observe that the Lollard hypothesis was tenuous, and this mature work is most valuable today to those interested in the history of Reformation scholarship. First published in 1911, Volume 3 focuses on the reign of Edward VI, the progress of 'Lollard' ideas into power, and the bishops' objections to the reforms implemented after the death of Henry VIII. It also includes a substantial introduction, and corrections to the two earlier volumes.
