BIBLIOGRAPHYIn writing this book, I used four groups of sources. To begin with there are the
standard contemporary and near-contemporary sources--documents of Henry's
reign, the Spanish and Venetian diplomatic calendars, Roper Life of Sir Thomas
More, Foxe Book of Martyrs, etc. Similarly, I have used the standard later works,
such as Mattingly Catherine of Aragon and the various biographies of Henry VIII,
without which no book on anyone of the period can be written.In addition, I have used two other types of sources that were necessary to
shape this particular work. The first is the studies of the lives of women of the
era--some written earlier in this century, but most since the 1970s, when the discipline of women's studies carved out a place in scholarly research.Second, I have used the works of writers who do not particularly deal with
the sixteenth century but rather interpret, from a feminist perspective, the realities of women's lives, taking as their starting point the understanding that in male-
dominated societies, male interpretations of reality in general and women in
particular determine any look at women, past or present. Although I have only
occasionally mentioned them in the text, they are the foundation of all my interpretations of these women's lives and experiences.Because notes can distract the reader, and because this book focuses on reinterpretation of accepted facts rather than on disputing the facts themselves, I have
avoided using notes.
