Scholarship on religious printed images during the English
Reformation (1535-1603) has generally focused on a few illustrated
works and has portrayed this period in England as a predominantly
non-visual religious culture. The combination of iconoclasm and
Calvinist doctrine have led to a misunderstanding as to the unique
ways that English Protestants used religious printed images.
Building on recent work in the history of the book and print
studies, this book analyzes the widespread body of religious
illustration, such as images of God the Father and Christ, in
Reformation England, assessing what religious beliefs they
communicated and how their use evolved during the period. The
result is a unique analysis of how the Reformation in England both
destroyed certain aspects of traditional imagery as well as
embraced and reformulated others into expressions of its own
character and identity.
