Rich Leonardi Reviews New Book on English Reformation: Supremacy and Survival

Yesterday, on the 500th anniversary of the coronation of Henry VIII, Rich Leonardi posted a review of Stephanie Mann's Supremacy and Survival, which "tells the compelling story of how 'English Catholics endured the Reformation'."

Rich and I share an affinity for the history of English Catholicism, and the one time I had the pleasure of meeting him was at a conference on the English Reformation. So, this is a book, based on Rich's review and recommendation, that I definitely plan on reading (assuming, of course, I can ever finally make it through the excellent, but very dense, The Stripping of the Altars).

Jay, my book is shorter, and Duffy inspired me--so perhaps that will help you decide which to read first! Great blog title, BTW.
Happy Easter!

reading Eamon Duffy is like trying to take a drink of water from Old Faithful.
