While researching a topic that was totally unrelated (i.e. autotheos), I happened upon some "notes" from a Reformed gent named Guy Davies which he wrote down during a lecture/paper delivered by Garry Williams: 'The English Reformation Today: Revise, Reverse or Revert?' (LINK). The following is from Guy's "notes":
Revisionists historians such as Eamon Duffy and Christopher Haigh wish to overturn the traditional Protestant view of the English Reformation. Some Evangelicals seem to want to reverse the Reformation for the sake of unity with Rome. Protestants might wish that we could revert to English Reformation, but that is not without its problems.
John Bugay (a contributor at the Beggars All blog) has been invoking Eamon Duffy (along with other liberal/revisionist historians like Peter Lampe—see my threads displayed HERE for some of my musings on liberal/revisionist historians) as a representative of "honest" scholarship (LINK TO BA LABEL - EAMON DUFFY) for sometime now; and earlier today, did so yet again IN THIS BA THREAD.
I have cautioned John about using liberal/revisionist historians like Duffy and Lampe in the AF threads linked to above (and in a number of combox posts)—but alas, my reflections have pretty much fallen on 'deaf ears' (I suspect because I am not Reformed)—perhaps John will give some thought to Garry Williams' reservations...
Grace and peace,
