    Eamon Duffy examines the ways in which the fraught history of the English Reformation has been retold to shape a Protestant national identity, so that the great Catholic churchmen have been overshadowed by their adversaries, such as Thomas Cranmer and Hugh Latimer. By examining the physical evidence of rood-screens and other church fittings alongside a range of Tudor texts that illustrate the lived experience of Tudor Catholicism, he highlights the misconceptions, prejudices and myths that have dogged accounts of this period.
