Cambridge historian Eamon Duffy has a new book out, and this article highlights his approach. Duffy has avoided propaganda and worked with primary documentation to show that the Protestant Reformation in England was more along the lines of Mao’s Cultural Revolution in Red China. A whole complex and beautiful culture was systematically and brutally destroyed. Churches and monasteries stripped and destroyed, libraries burnt, music banned–by the reign of Elizabeth I the English existed in a police state similar to those in Communist Europe during the Iron Curtain era. Read Duffy’s work if you don’t believe me.
