Product Description

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Author: Peter Walker

Reginald Pole, diplomat, friend of scholars, cardinals and artists, and cousin to Henry VIII, is first seen stealing into the Medici chapel at dead of night to catch a forbidden glimpse of Michelangeloís masterpiece of funerary sculpture. But as the kingís representative in Italy, and an admired scholar himself, it falls to him to make the case for Henryís divorce from Katherine of Aragon. And it falls to the hapless Michael Throckmorton to become Thomas Cromwellís courier to Pole in Rome. (pb)
