The scope of the various essays is wide, encompassing his intellectual relations with Erasmus and Luther, his period of ambassadorial service on the Continent, his remarkable command of the English language at one of the most important periods in its development as a vehicle for intellectual and religious debate, and his extensive redrafting of a new code of law in place of the old ecclesiastical canon law.
