BBC Ignorance on Tudor History

An "historian" on CountryFile last night claimed Henry VIII's "Defence of the Seven Sacraments didn't sell a single copy in Englnd".

Er.... Because it was printed for circulation to Princes, Bishops and universities throughout Europe.

Honestly, it was either clumsy spin or terrible ignorance and the BBC should know better... Or maybe not! Sheesh.

  1. Maybe both (spin and ignorance) and also, a dab of prejudice.
