Reformation and Resistance in Tudor Lancashire by Christopher Haigh
Book DescriptionHistorians have long known that Lancashire remained more solidly Catholic after the Reformation than any other part of England, but the peculiarity of the area has never been explained. This book argues that for geographical, social and economic, as well as religious reasons, orthodox Catholicism in the county was at its high-point immediately before the Reformation, so that the history of religious change in Lancashire in the sixteenth century is not the conventional one of Protestant triumph and Catholic failure. The Henrician Reformation was met by resistance and rebellion, while the Edwardian reforms were inadequately enforced and made little impact, though a handful of radical preachers made a few gains in one corner of the county. The Marian regime was able to revitalize the old religion, and the Elizabethan Settlement encountered widespread opposition. Catholic practices could not be excluded from the established Church, and Catholic recusancy developed earlier and on a wider scale than in any other area of England.

Plain Man's Pathways to Heaven, Hardback (September 2007)
A lively account of popular religion in England under Elizabeth I and the early Stuarts, a time when everyone had to go to church and almost everyone was religious to some extent. The book deals with the religious beliefs and practices of ordinary people - mainly by quoting their actual words.
English Reformations, Paperback (April 1993)» View all books by Christopher Haigh
This lively and readable study disproves any facile assumption that the triumph of Protestantism was inevitable, and goes beneath the surface of official political policy to explore the religious views and practices of ordinary English people.
