In Defence of Anglicanism: A monograph on the life of Archbishop John Whitgift DD

02 November 2006


This book was published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Whitgift’s death, in 1604. Matt Drummond considers the influence that the last Elizabethan archbishop had on the Church, as he tells the story of a man who advocated theories of Calvin but supported Anglican ritual, and who enforced the Queen’s policy of religious uniformity (available from the author, 48 Northampton Road, Croydon CR0 7HT, for £2.50 plus 50p p.& p.).
