Thomas Cranmer was the architect of the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. He was the Archbishop who guided England through the early Reformation, and Henry VIII through the minefields of divorce. This is the first major biography for more than three decades, and the first for a century to exploit rich new manuscript sources in Britain and elsewhere. Diarmaid MacCulloch is professor of the history of the church at the University of Oxford and a fellow of St Cross College (Winner of The James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Biography, The Duff Cooper Prize and The Whitbread Biography Award 1996).
