Robert Hugh Benson is simply an astounding writer (to say the least!). and some other very well known writers (Chesterton, Knox, Sheen) were admirers of his work and took influence from him as well. This book, By What Authority?, is an easy yet profound work and I HIGHLY recommend anyone who may be interested in this topic, (or even if you somehow stumbled across this by accident!), to get it, read it, read it again, and then give it to someone else who will benefit from being enlightened by such a prolific author.

BY WHAT AUTHORITY? is Robert Hugh Benson's first in a series of three novels designed to tell the story of the English Reformation from the Catholic point of view. This he achieved without the use of the stereotypes that characterized virtually all such productions in his day to the detriment of both sides of the question. Robert Hugh Benson tells a stirring, heroic tale of Catholics under Queen Elizabeth I. The characters are beautifully delineated; they live and breathe still in my mind, eighteen hours after the book was finished.

If you like be-bop, funky modern writing - this book is not for you. If, however, you respond to elegant, educated and grammatically inoffensive writing, where the subject-matter is not an opportunity for the author to emote, you will love this book. This is the first book I have read by RH Benson and I have now ordered quite a few other books. His writing is exquisite, but the pace of the story is its strength - I could not put the book down.

This is an historical novel, and relates events that occurred during the Elizabethan era, when the Reformation took hold. The fictional story manages to convey to the reader the harsh realities of that era and the religious conflicts that prevailed. The author, however, addresses the different religious views with a deep understanding and tolerance of the philosophical foundations of the relevant religions.

The historical accuracy is unquestionable - quite a relief when faced with the plethora of propaganda supportive of the Tudor regime. In this regard, I must digress to comment upon the benefits that the modern reader enjoys by the internet. Prior to such providers as Amazon, authors such as RH Benson, and histories that differed from those that supported the vested interests of the powerful, would simply not have been published, or would have been difficult to obtain. The ability to obtain books such as this, at a cheap price and without difficulty, means that information is disseminated throughout the world that has been previously passed down through word-of-mouth, or has been silent.

I encourage any readers who are enthusiastic about the historical accuracy of the story, to verify, by independent research, features and descriptions of characters and events in the story.

This book is a good story, well-written, and with layers which are there if you choose to explore them. I would venture to say that it is not a book for Dan Brown fans. However, if you respond to the Edwardian style of writing, and like your historical portrayals to be historically correct, then you will like this book.

I know this book is excellent and I thought I would save money buying it in this particular form... For what it is, it's put together well and decent quality but the paperback book is so large and cumbersome, I didn't even get through it and it sits in the bookshelf, unread. It's just awkward, wish I never bought it.

The "book" looks like a bunch of photo copies put together.

This is an intriguing book. It begins rather slowly but moves along quite nicely once one is accustomed to the pace. The characters are rather clearly cut, including both virtues and vices. Although written over a hundred years ago at the time of the Elizabethan persecution of "papists", it rings true even today where it is considered "with it" to denounce the Catholic Church. A good read.

Absolutely wonderful book. Captures the complexities and horrors of the English Reformation. I was so sad when I was finished with the book because I didn't want it to end!
