In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F.

Stirling Castle, Scotland

Experience the grandeur of the newly refurbished Renaissance royal palace at Stirling Castle. This short film offers a tantalizing glimpse of the sumptuous interiors, now returned to how they may have looked in the mid 16th century. See fabulous period costumes, hand-made in silks and velvets, worn by the team who show visitors round the apartments where Mary Queen of Scots lived as a little girl with her mother, Mary of Guise.
