Following a masterly interpretive introduction, Peter Marshall traces the effects of the Reformers' assaults on established beliefs about the afterlife. He shows how debates about purgatory and the nature of hellfire acted as unwitting agents of modernization. He then turns to popular beliefs about angels, ghosts and fairies and considers how these were reimagined and reappropriated when cut from their medieval moorings.
