The Voices of Morebath: Reformation and Rebellion in an English Village

The religious upheavals of the 16th century that transformed English rural life were captured by Sir Christopher Trychay, the priest of Morebath, Devon, who recorded parish meetings between 1520 and 1574. Unlike most parish records, Trychay's records are full of names, incidental details, opinions and prejudices. Interspersed throughout Duffy's engaging narrative, itself packed with detail, are extracts from Trychay's records, with modern English translations. These record life in a small, piously Catholic parish and the effects of enforced protestantism, the disastrous West Country Prayer Book Rebellion of 1549 and Elizabeth's taxation.
