His life is placed within its proper context in terms of the ideas and attitudes of his peers and contemporaries, and new light is thrown on his motivations and the influences that acted upon him. His canny ability to weather the ups and downs of political and religious change enabled him to remain in office under very different regimes, but in the end he was brutally murdered by a band of conventiclers, who saw him only as a persecutor and a perjured prelate.
