The Introduction to my thesis! Enjoy and leave your feedback!

History will remember Anne Boleyn as the second wife of King Henry VIII. Her reputation as a flirtatious, controversial usurper of the throne has been preserved through accounts by enemies and admirers alike. Was she a sincere reformer or a brazen hussy, supporting with sheer opportunism, any man or measure that would bring her to the throne? Despite her obvious power grab, what is ignored is Anne's significant contribution to English religious reformation. This book will explore how Anne's utilization of the English Bible, supplementation of Henry's religious thought as well as her fragile alliance with Thomas Cranmer aided in spreading and legitimizing the Protestant reformation in England.
I am a little new to this whole blogging arena! Here's to hoping it is successful! Cheers!
