Faction And Faith


In this book, Anne Duffin draws upon new source material, combining national documents and local family collections with an analysis of churchwardens' accounts, borough records and over 350 wills. She challenges the view that Cornwall was naturally royalist and presents a picture of a politically-aware and religiously-splintered society.
