Cardinal Wolsey

Stephanie Mann discusses the fallen cardinal.
Had I but served my God with half the zeal
I served my King, he would not in mine age
Have left me naked to mine enemies. ( from Shakespeare's Henry VIII)

When I was in high school I read a biography of Woolsey with the title Nake to Mine Enemies. It was terrific. It was written in the
50s and is probably out of print now.
