The Queen and the Heretic: How two women changed the religion of England [9780745968827]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The dual biography of two remarkable women - Catherine Parr and Anne Askew. One was the last queen of a powerful monarch, the second a countrywoman from Lincolnshire. But they were joined together in their love for the new learning - and their adherence to Protestantism threatened both their lives. Both women wrote about their faith, and their writings are still with us. Powerful men at court sought to bring Catherine down, and used Anne Askew's notoriety as a weapon in that battle. Queen Catherine Parr survived, while Anne Askew, the only woman to be racked, was burned to death. This book explores their lives, and the way of life for women from various social strata in Tudor England.


AUTHOR: Popular historian Derek Wilson came to prominence 40 years ago with A Tudor Tapestry. He is the highly acclaimed author of over 50 books and has written and presented numerous television and radio programmes. He lives and writes in Devon.
