From the cover: This absorbing book, as Asa Briggs describes it in his Foreword, is not only for students but for the general reader seeking a deeper understanding of the past. Its author believes that the social history of religion is best studied within the context of a particular local community, where elements of continuity and change can be clearly discerned. Focusing upon Lewes, the county town of East Sussex, it exemplifies almost everything of significance in the religious life of England over the last 500 years. Its title is taken from a hymn by a collateral descendant of one of the men burned in the fire depicted on its cover. Burn Holy Fire sheds new light on the origins of the commemoration of these martyrs and of the accompanying Bonfire Night celebrations for which Lewes is famous.
