Mary I : England's Catholic queen by John Edwards( )

18 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and held by 1,671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lifestory of Mary I - daughter of Henry VIII and his Spanish wife, Catherine of Aragon - is often distilled to a few dramatic episodes: her victory over the attempted coup by Lady Jane Grey, the imprisonment of her half-sister Elizabeth, the bloody burning of Protestants, her short marriage to Philip of Spain. This original and deeply researched biography paints a far more detailed portrait of Mary and offers a fresh understanding of her religious faith and policies as well as her historical significance in England and beyond

The Spain of the Catholic Monarchs, 1474-1520 by John Edwards( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A history of the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella from the origins and upbringing of the two rulers, through the events and circumstances of their rule, to the consequences for the following generations." "The book provides full coverage of political, military, economic, social, cultural and religious life in Spain during this period. It covers the difficulties surrounding Isabella's accession in Castille and the consolidation of the new regime. The author analyses the origins and work of the new Spanish Inquisition and the war against the Muslim kingdom of Granada. Emphasis is placed on economic life, including overseas trade and maritime discovery; there is coverage of foreign policy, literature, art, architecture, music and drama; and analysis of the influence on Spain of Humanism and the Renaissance. The role of religion is fully discussed, including the expulsion of the Jews in 1492, the treatment of Muslims, and the religious and economic life of the Church together with efforts to reform it." "The book concludes with an evaluation of the achievements of the "Catholic Monarchs" and their legacy to Charles V. It provides a valuable introduction to this key period in Spanish history."--Jacket

Archbishop Pole by John Edwards( )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fresh exploration of the life, work and writing of Archbishop Pole, focuses particularly on Pole's final years (1556-58) as Archbishop of Canterbury. Fully integrating Pole's English and Continental European experiences, John Edwards places these in their historical context and signposts lessons for contemporary issues and concerns. Stressing the events and character of Pole's 'English' life, up to his exile in the 1530s, as well as in his final years in England (1554-58), this book explores his close relationship, both genealogical and emotional, with Henry VIII and Mary I. Portraying Pole as a crucial figure in the Catholic-Protestant division, which still affects Britain today, this book details the first, and so far last, attempt to restore Roman Catholicism as the 'national religion' of England and Wales by telling the life-story of the hinge figure in forging English religious and political identity for several centuries. The final section of this book draws together important and illuminating source material written by Pole during his years as Archbishop of Canterbury. - Publisher

Reforming Catholicism in the England of Mary Tudor : the achievement of Friar Bartolomé Carranza by R. W Truman( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the history of the attempted restoration of Roman Catholicism in the England of Mary Tudor, the contribution of her husband Philip and his Spanish entourage has been largely ignored. This book highlights one of the most prominent of Philip's religious advisers, the friar Bartolome Carranza. A leading Dominican, Carranza served the emperor Charles V, whom he represented at the earlier sessions of the Council of Trent, and then Philip II of Spain, who brought him to England. Even before Mary's death, Fray Bartolome left for the Low Countries, and then returned to Spain, where, as archbishop of Toledo, he was arrested for 'heresy' by the Spanish Inquisition. His trial, first in Spain and then in Rome, lasted from 1559 until shortly before his death, partially rehabilitated, in Rome, in 1576"--Jacket

Mary I : the daughter of time by John Edwards( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mary I (1553-58) became England's ruler on the unexpected death of her brother Edward VI. Her short reign is one of the great potential turning points in the country's history. As a convinced Catholic and the wife of Philip II, king of Spain and the most powerful of all European monarchs, Mary could have completely changed her country's orbit, making it a province of the Habsburg Empire and obedient again to Rome. These extraordinary possibilities are fully dramatized in John Edward's superb short biography. The real Mary I has almost disappeared under the great mass of Protestant propaganda that buried her reputation during her younger sister, Elizabeth I's reign. But what if she had succeeded?"--Wheelers website
