The life of Thomas Cranmer by Theodore Maynard( Book )

"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. Depicting Cranmer's life, from early days as a Cambridge student, to his chance meeting with Henry VIII and his long career as Archbishop of Canterbury, Mr. Maynard clears up much of the misinformation centring around him. Thomas Cranmer, he makes abundantly clear, was an artist, not a man of action. Seized and divested of his position by Queen Mary, he made seven recantations, but always with the reservation that he owed allegiance to the monarch of England first, the Pope second. In 1556 he was burned at the stake, and Catholicism received a major blow." -- Book jacket

Richest of the poor; the life of Saint Francis of Assisi by Theodore Maynard( Book )

11 editions published between 1948 and 1967 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author has given this lively, humorous and deeply religious man the sort of biography he might have wanted--warm and sympathetic, yet factually accurate. He traces the development of the Franciscan Order and recounts graphically the fervent worship of Francis' converts, the famous scenes with the lepers, the sermon to the birds, and the miracle of the stigmata. Against the rich panoply of the turbulent thirteenth-century history, the author has captured all of the saints' gentleness and simplicity of nature, along with some exquisite characterizations of St. Francis's contemporaries in the Church

Biography of Thomas Cromwell
Saint Benedict and his monks by Theodore Maynard( Book )

10 editions published between 1954 and 1958 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

St. Benedict's collision with history took place at the point of time when the Roman Empire was collapsing and the West was enveloped in unrest. It was his curious destiny to become an instrument for the stability and regeneration of European society when all he had in mind at the time he determined to forsake the world was to live the life of a solitary in a cave. Becoming aware of his own experience and observation of the unsuitability for his times of the forms of asceticism practiced by the Desert Fathers, Benedict consolidated the cenobitical life, discouraged private ventures in austerities, and laid down the norms by which men could live together in peace, labour and prayer
