Peter Marshall is Professor of History at the University of Warwick, where he has established a reputation as one of the UK’s leading historians of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries – in particular, of the religious tumults and cultural changes of the era. He is a Fellow of the British Academy and an editor of The English Historical Review, the world’s oldest and most venerable English-language journal of history.
In 2018, Peter’s sweeping narrative history of the English Reformation, Heretics and Believers, published by Yale University Press, won the Wolfson Prize. He is the author of eight other books, including 1517: Martin Luther and the Invention of the Reformation, and The Reformation: A Very Short Introduction.
Peter was born and grew up on Orkney and he is currently writing Storm’s Edge: Life, Death and Magic on the Islands of Orkney for William Collins.
