British Academy

For many students of history in the later 20th century, the name of A. G. Dickens was synonymous with the English Reformation. He was, however, a scholar of diverse and cultured interests, with a desire to disseminate his learning to the widest possible audience. There is a clear progression in his academic career from its pioneering beginnings in the use of local archives, through national history, to the European studies that occupied his later years. Two of his books which have stood the test of time as widely-read teaching books are Lollards and Protestants and The English Reformation.
