A Look Inside
Main Description
A study of Parliament during the period between the dissolution of the Reformation Parliament in 1536 and the death of Henry VIII in 1547, this book is a sequel to Professor Lehmberg's The Reformation Parliament (1970). As in the earlier volume, the membership of both Houses of Parliament is analysed and the events in Parliament and in the concurrent meetings of Convocation, together with all pieces of legislation passed in these years, are discussed. A concluding chapter describes the records of Parliament and the development of parliamentary procedure during the reign of Henry VIII.
