EDuffy Mary Catholic England.jpgStuart Chessman, the blogger at The Society of St. Hugh of Cluny recently gave his musings of Eamon Duffy’s newest work, Fires of faith: Catholic England under Mary Tudor (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2009).

Professor Duffy was at Yale this past week to present the Bainton Lecture on his work.

While I have not read the book, I am always intrigued by Duffy’s perspective: it tends to be strikingly real and on-the-mark. Even Chessman’s review has drawn me closer in getting the book.You?
