Just in from Bali, on a delayed flight (one engine out of two failed for a while, mercifully on the ground in Singapore), and just watched a recording of Part 3 of the BBC’s Wolf Hall. Incredible rendering of the story, including horrific treatment of James Bainham.
Mention of William Tyndale led me to this, by Melvyn Bragg. What an extraordinary contribution to the modern world.
Reminded me of childhood in Northern Ireland, straddling different religions, then endless, self-directed reading about religious wars while at Bryanston. also of the unspeakable burning of a Jordanian pilot by Islamic State while I was in Indonesia.
