9780006863540: Peace Print and Protestantism 1558

In 1450, England, defeated in its attempt to conquer France, was sliding into the abyss of civil war. By 1558, the Elizabethan period was dawning and England had enjoyed 70 years of peace at home. She was more united than ever before, Wales was incorporated into the kingdom and the Tudors were bringing Ireland firmly - and bloodily - under English domination. Other changes were being wrought. Trade had expanded. English ships were sailing to America, Russia and Africa and the printing press was transforming people's knowlege of the world. Protestantism, boosted by Henry VIII's quarrel with Rome, was beginning to establish itself. But some things seemed immutable. The poor were getting poorer and a fiery peasant revolt was an ever present prospect.
