(p.159) 1 Grindal
The Elizabethan Puritan Movement

Patrick Collinson

Oxford University Press

Grindal was an archbishop for thoroughgoing protestants, one of the very few Elizabethan bishops who enjoyed the full approval of the protestant governing class and the equal confidence of all but a small embittered minority of the godly preaching ministers. He was conspicuously a gospeller: severe to papists, but in all his dealings with protestants an evangelical father in God, whose instinct was to proceed fraternally rather than judicially, let alone pontifically. If Grindal was to the taste of the protestant laity, he was not merely their tool. His reputation was much greater than modern, post-tractarian Anglican historians have allowed, and there was nothing incongruous about his elevation.
