"Shortly after Mary Tudor ascended the throne of England in 1553, the Archbishop of Canterbury was found guilty of treason, subsequently charged with heresy and in 1556 was burned at the stake. In this dramatic martyrdom of Thomas Cranmer anti-Catholic sentiment reached a new pitch and the compiler of the Book of Common Prayer became a powerful symbol for the new Protestantism. Theodore Maynard has written a brilliant biography of this man who did more than any other single person to determine the course of the Church of England."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
