Title: The Stripping of the Altars. Traditional Religion in England 1400-1580.
Description: New Haven: Yale University Press, 1992. 0300060769. "This major revisionist account of the pre-Reformation church recreates lay people's experience of religion in 15th century England. Eamon Duffy shows that late medieval Catholicism was neither decadent nor decayed, but was a strong and vigourous tradition, and that the Reformation represented a violent rupture from a popular and theologically respectable religious system." Pp.12/654, 141 black & white plates, owner's label to front free endpaper. Paperback, creasing to lower front corner. VG.
