Details

By the autumn of 1536 Henry VIII had broken with Rome and was eyeing the wealth of the monasteries. In the north of England, 30,000 men loyal to the Catholic Church took arms against him in the uprising known as the Pilgrimage of Grace. Using the rebels' own testimony, this history examines their motives and beliefs, traces the course of the ill-fated insurrection, and describes the rhetoric, bribery and retribution employed by Henry's minister Thomas Cromwell to overcome them.
