There Luther hid for the next eight months as his fate -- and that of the Reformation -- hung in the balance. In

The English first came into existence as an idea, before they had a common ruler and before the country they lived in even had a name. They have lasted as a recognizable entity ever since, and their defining national institutions can be traced back to the earliest years of their history. The English have come a
