Henry VIII's Enforcer: The Rise and Fall Of Thomas Cromwell
SBS  |  March 14, 2014

Thomas Cromwell has gone down in history as one of the most corrupt and manipulative ruffians ever to hold power in England. He used torture to bring about the execution of a woman who had been his friend and supporter, Anne Boleyn. Diarmaid MacCulloch, professor of the history of the church at Oxford University, reveals a different image of Cromwell - a principled and pioneering statesman driven by radical evangelism.
