Product Details


“Thomas Cromwell has famously defied his biographers, but no more. Diarmaid MacCulloch’s book is subtle, witty and precisely constructed. He has sifted the vast archive to clear away the accumulated error, muddle and propaganda of centuries, allowing us to see this clever and fascinating man better than ever before, and in the mirror of his times. This a book that—and it’s not often you can say this—we have been awaiting for four hundred years.” —Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies

Praise for Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years

“Immensely ambitious and absorbing.” Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker

“A landmark contribution . . . It is difficult to imagine a more comprehensive and surprisingly accessible volume than MacCulloch’s.” Jon Meacham, The New York Times Book Review

“A prodigious, thrilling, masterclass of a history book. MacCulloch is to be congratulated for his accessible handling of so much complex, difficult material.” —John Cornwell, Financial Times

Praise for Silence: A Christian History

“In MacCulloch’s hands, reading about Christianity often feels as soulful, as silently consuming, as prayer itself.” —Tom Bissell, Harper’s Magazine

Silence is excellent: beautifully written, factually dense, intellectually sophisticated.” —Kathryn Schulz, New York magazine

“Enjoyable and intelligent . . . MacCulloch is a gifted scholar and his ideas are always worth hearing.” —The Economist
