Upon Mary’s accession to the throne of England, hundreds of Protestant clergy fled to Europe, and a great number of those to Zurich. When they returned to England after the coronation of Elizabeth, these clergy maintained correspondence with their Swiss hosts. Collected here are nearly 300 letters between these English exiles and continental Reformers—including John Jewel, Henry Bullinger, Robert Horne, Peter Martyr, Edmund Grindal, and others. Volume 1 contains correspondence from 1558–1579.
Hastings Robinson was a nineteenth-century English historian and a member of the evangelical Anglican group, the Parker Society.
