Continuity And Change. Personnel And Administration Of The Church Of England 1500-1642.
Leicester University Press.
8vo. 5.75 x 8.75 inches. 303 pp. Bound in original green cloth, gilt, in dust wrapper. A very good copy. Ten essays by the younger generation of Reformation historians investigate beneath the institutional and liturgical continuity of the pre- and post-Reformation English Church to ask whether the surviving institutions had been effectively altered from within. The four main sections are Personnel, Finance, The New Foundations (at Durham, Chester and Peterborough) and The Courts Christian (including Canterbury and Chichester). Rosemary O'Day joined the Open University in 1975 and is now professor emeritus in history. Felicity Heal (b.1945), Reformation historian, was a lecturer at the Faculty of History, University of Oxford.
