Stephen Gardiner was Bishop of Winchester under three reigns - Henry VIII, Edward VI and Queen Mary. His career began before the break with Rome and spanned the dangerous years of religious reform under Henry and Edward. This is the first biography of Stephen Gardiner - the "Wily Winchester" of Protestant propaganda - since the 1920s. Based on original research in archives in England and Europe, it proves a narrative of Gardiner's career at Cambridge, his involvement in Henry VIII's divorce and in protecting Catholic doctrine after the break with Rome and during the reign of Edward VI. The book reassesses the facts around John Foxe's portrait of Gardiner as the all-powerful conservative machinator and shows how through skilful deployment of foreign policy his influence on Henry VIII was frequently decisive.
