Annals of the Reformation and Establishment of Religion

The ecclesiastical historian John Strype (1643–1737) published the second volume of his monumental Elizabethan religious history Annals of the Reformation in 1725. For over two and a half centuries it remained one of the most important Protestant histories of the period and has been reprinted in numerous editions. Volume 2 Part 2 covers the years 1575 to 1580 focusing on European diplomacy; friendship with the Netherlands; difficulties with Mary Queen of Scots; the Queen's suitors; relations with the English episcopate; events at the University of Cambridge; and the printing of vernacular books. An appendix contains a rich selection of primary sources - state papers, official proclamations, royal records, and letters - for the period. Strype's thorough use of sources and the enormous scope and detail of his history has ensured its place as an outstanding work of eighteenth-century scholarship. It should be read by every student of Elizabethan religious history.
