 Our Description


Extensively revised and nearly doubled in length, and also newly enriched with dozens of historical illustrations, this second edition of Cranmer's Godly Order is in effect a new book.  Wth greater documentation and detail than ever, Davies traces the steps by which the ancient Catholic Mass became the Lord's Supper in the Church of England - and shows how those changes were directly inspired by the Reformers' fundamental theological differences with the Church of Rome.


The original 1976 edition of Cranmer, and of Vols. II and III in Davies' Liturgical Revolution trilogy (which includes Pope John's Council and Pope Paul's New Mass, drew the highest praise from critics:

"This monumental work should be read by all serious students of the contemporary malaise of the Church."
- Paul Hallett, National Catholic Register

"The most brilliant polemicist on the 'right' is Michael Davies . . . his masterpiece is The Liturgical Revolution."
Larry Henderson, The Catholic Register (Canada)

"This book is a masterpiece."
- Introibo, France

"An unbiased, clear, logically coordinated and scholarly account . . . unlikely to be superseded for many years to come."
- The Bulletin, (Malta)

"A balanced, cool appraisal based not on conjecture but on fact. . .  I recommend it without reserve."
- Paul Crane, S.J., Christian Order
