“Two beheadings out of six wives is too many.”

– Henry VIII of England

 

Edward Herbert was the first Baron of Cherbury during the 17th-century and was an important Anglo-Welsh historian and philosopher. While mostly-known for his treatises on metaphysics, he also composed historical accounts of the kings of England.

 

‘The Life and Reign of King Henry VIII’ covers a wide range of topics and events occurring during early 16th-century England. Important topics include Catholic influence of Thomas Wolsey, physical changes made to Westminster Cathedral, laws allowing white meat to be eaten during Lent, various treaties signed by Henry VIII, decrees and lives of Popes Julius II and Leo X, rise of Maximillian in the Holy League, a brief discussion on the Council of Trent, Thomas Cromwel and Thomas Cranmer, and much more!

 

However, the most important section in this book is Henry VIII’s interactions with Martin Luther – his opposition to Catholic indulgences, burning of books, abolishment of old mass and composition of new Protestant liturgies, and his appeals to the General Council.

 

According to Lowndes,

This work has been ever esteemed one of the best histories in the English language”.
