"This is not a life of Cranmer; it is a study of his character and motives, with exposition of, and emphasis upon, his literary genius and its legacy to the Church of England. For the most of the facts related I have based myself on the scholarship of Professor Pollard, as much everyone since the publication of his monograph which treats of Cranmer as a 'Hero of the Reformation.' I have alluded in brief notes to such few errors as appear in that work and call for correction." - Belloc.
