 >There are no recent biographies of Whitgift that I know of.

Doesn't the very substantial piece on Whitgift by William Joseph Sheils 
in 2004's 'Oxford Dictionary of National Biography' (www.oxforddnb.com - 
if your institution subscribes) count as a 'recent biography'?

Tom:

Thanks so much for your reply. Your information suggests many plot 
possibilities. Grindal - fired for subordination, John Whitgift, the 
Royal Chaplins and Catherine Parr. All present rich novel threads. I'm 
intrigued by your observation that the "sacramental closeness of 
confession" was lost/denied once Elizabeth broke ties with the Pope. I 
had not thought of the profound impact this very specific and central 
tenant of Catholicism - repentance, forgiveness and thus the possibility 
to entrance to heaven - would have had on the Catholic population.

for instance.

And her personal copy of the Book of Common Prayer was in Latin 
translation! (The text is still extant, and is regarded as an important 
witness by BCP scholars.)
