Catherine Parr's Prayerbook

This prayerbook belonged this Henry VIII's last wife, Catherine Parr. She was a Protestant and believed strongly in the religious reforms - something that would lead her dangerously close to the scaffold. The book is currently held by Sudeley Castle.
It has been speculated that the Queen actually wrote the text herself but this has never been confirmed - it would seem like something Catherine would do, though.
