A brefe dialoge bitwene a Christen father and his stobborne sonne : the first Protestant catechism published in English by William Roy( )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 1,645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a new, critical edition of William Roye's A Brefe Dialoge bitwene a Christen Father and his stobborne Sonne, which was, in 1527, the first Protestant catechism to be published in English, and the first to provide an extended and detailed statement of the new reformed doctrine in the vernacular. It was thus enormously influential on English Reformist thought, outlining a combination of doctrines that were to appeal to English reformers for decades to come."

A critical edition of Robert Barnes' A supplication unto the most gracyous prince Kynge Henry the VIII, 1534 by Robert Barnes( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Barnes (1495-1540) was perhaps the most important sixteenth century English Protestant reformer after William Tyndale. The shifting religious and political views of Henry VIII positioned Barnes at the opposite end of the popular ideology of the day, culminating in his execution in 1540 soon after that of Thomas Cromwell. A Supplication Vnto the Most Gracyous Prince Kynge Henry The. VIIJ., the first edition of which appeared in 1531 during Barnes's German exile, was a controversial lament for the religious climate in England and an earnest argument in favour of reform." "In this critical edition, Douglas H. Parker compares all extant versions of the text published in the sixteenth century, focusing on the differences between the 1531 and 1534 editions."--Jacket
A proper dyaloge betwene a gentillman and an husbandman by Douglas H Parker( )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Less well-known than the works of William Tyndale, A proper dyaloge betwene a Gentillman and an Husbandman is an important Reformation tract that articulates many of the major complaints of the early English Protestant reformers and captures them in a dramatic way through the medium of dialogue. It was designed to expose various manifestations of clerical abuse and act as a wake-up call to the laity - kings, gentlemen, and farmers alike - to pay attention to this malfeasance. The lengthy dialogue between a gentleman and a husbandman, or farmer, is actually a hybrid text that reinterprets history, rewriting it to support decidedly Protestant goals. A proper dyaloge was published twice: the second version, the basis of this edition, appeared in 1530 only months after the publication of the first, which appeared probably in late 1529. New material, plus a new, more aggressive tone mark the transition from one to another. The probable Lutheran authors borrow from a Lollard tract to demonstrate the continuity between Lollard and Lutheran thinking, at least on the matter of clerical worldliness, and to show that the claims made against the clergy by both the gentleman and husbandman are not new but part of a long-standing tradition. Following the two-part dialogue is a final prose piece: A compendious olde treatyse, which argues the case for a vernacular version of the Bible. A proper dyaloge is important within the context of reformation literature for a number of reasons: it establishes links between Lollard and early sixteenth-century reformist thought; the issue of editor/authorship and censorship is crucial since much of the second edition deviates from the original version; and it is an excellent introduction to early Protestant critiques of the Church
The praier and complaynte of the ploweman unto Christe by Douglas H Parker( )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an old-spelling, critical edition of the version of The praier and complaynte of the ploweman unto Christe that resurfaced in the 1530s. Demonstrating the continuity of ideas between the Lollards and the Reformists, Douglas Parker situates The praier and complaynte firmly in the tradition of English Reformist borrowing of texts, and argues for William Tyndale as editor of the sixteenth-century version of The praier and complaynte. Parker examines the two extant copies of the manuscript, and comments on the work's structure and reformist content. He presents full historical, literary, and biographical information in his introduction, and a full line-by-line commentary on the text." "This careful, meticulous work is a revealing look at the ideology of Protestant religious struggles in England from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century."--BOOK JACKET

Staffing issues in military health care : mental health providers and VA nursing( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mental health providers are essential to the Department of Defense's (DOD) delivery of health care to servicemembers and other beneficiaries. DOD's need for these providers has grown as increasing numbers of servicemembers experience life-threatening combat situations. This led to congressional attention-such as the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2010, which included provisions to help DOD increase the number of mental health providers it employs. This book examines how staffing levels changed in response to congressional direction; and how DOD and the military services assess current and future needs f
