Summary:
Thomas Cromwell has gone down in history as one of the most corrupt and manipulative ruffians ever to hold power in this country. A commoner turned Chief Minister, his ruthless pursuit of power and money have captured the public's imagination for centuries, painting a dark portrait of a merciless politician who destroyed people and institutions to please and enrich his king. But Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch (How God Made The English, A History Of Christianity), reveals another side. He argues that Thomas Cromwell was a principled and pioneering statesman: an idealist and a revolutionary, whose radical evangelism laid the foundations for the modern British state.
