King's sister--queen of dissent : Marguerite of Navarre (1492-1549) and her evangelical network by Jonathan A Reid( )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study reconstructs for the first time Marguerite of Navarre's leadership of a broad circle of nobles, prelates, humanist authors, and commoners, who sought to advance the reform of the French church along evangelical (Protestant) lines. Hitherto misunderstood in scholarship, they are revealed to have pursued, despite persecution, a consistent reform program from the Meaux experiment to the end of Francis I's reign through a variety of means: fostering local church reform, publishing a large corpus of religious literature, high-profile public preaching, and attempting to shape the direction of royal policy. Their distinctive doctrines, relations with major reformers - including their erstwhile colleague Calvin - involvement in major Reformation events, and the impact of their unsuccessful attempt are all explored."--Publisher's website
Neo-Latin and the humanities : essays in honour of Charles E. Fantazzi( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In their range and breadth, the essays in this collection illustrate the cultural force of Neo-Latin in Early Modern Europe. Neo-Latin was a vehicle for the translation of other languages; it united people across boundaries of ethnicity and nation; it carried with it the legacy of classical Latinity; it provided insight into religious doctrine; it shaped the development of early modern vernaculars; and, not least, it offered both style and substance to the evolving practice of Renaissance literary and textual criticism. To the degree that the humanities recognize their roots in the fifteenth-century studia humanitatis � the fields of grammar, rhetoric, history, poetry, and moral philosophy � they are also conscious of how these fields flourish in the domain of Latin culture.--
La réforme en France et en Italie : contacts, comparaisons et contrastes : [actes du colloque international de Rome, 27-29 octobre 2005] by Simonetta AdorniBraccesi( )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le déroulement de la Réforme en France et en Italie présente en même temps des similitudes frappantes et des différences évidentes. Première rencontre consacrée aux comparaisons, aux contrastes et aux contacts entre ces deux mouvements de renouveau religieux, puissants, mais qui finalement échouent au moins partiellement, le colloque réuni à Rome les 27-20 octobre 2005 avait plusieurs objectifs : en premier lieu, étudier les rapports directs entre les individus et les événements dans ces deux pays, beaucoup plus importants que ce que beaucoup d'historiens avaient pu penser ; ensuite, favoriser la rencontre entre des méthodes et des questionnements historiographiques différents, qui doit conduire à de nouvelles voies de recherches pour chaque pays ; enfin, mener une comparaison systématique entre les deux courants pour éclairer des thématiques et des problèmes majeurs jusqu'ici rarement abordés qui suscitent de nouvelles réflexions problématiques plus larges sur les deux Réformes

Elizabeth I, visual icon : a title unintended by Emily Ballance Stewart( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis explores Elizabeth I's relationship with her official state portraiture to show that she placed little value in its meaning and authority for political and diplomatic uses. Understanding her personal relationship with the state portrait is significant because there are many surviving contemporary portraits of Elizabeth and most scholars believe that she tried to control the production and dissemination of these portraits for various reasons. This thesis argues that Elizabeth did not value this type of portrait enough to be a consistent well-paying patron or to exert censorship over its creation and distribution. By comparing Elizabeth to her Tudor predecessors and Western European royal peers it is clear that she did not commission and use the state portrait to the extent that other early modern kings and queens had. When comparing Elizabeth's use of censorship in other areas of communication such as the printing press, the theatre, and the church, state portraiture received little to no censorship or royal concern. An analysis of Elizabeth's words, written, spoken, or recorded by others, also reveals Elizabeth was antithetical to the state portrait for domestic or foreign diplomatic use. Elizabeth did not value the state portrait, therefore, she was not an active agent in its production and she did not attempt to control its creation and distribution. These findings contradict Sir Roy Strong's assertion, which has been widely accepted, that Elizabeth did try to control these images based on his analysis of a draft proclamation of 1563 and a Privy Council Order of 1596. This revised assessment of Elizabeth's relationship to state portraiture is essential to righting our understanding of who commissioned and censored her portraits, their meaning, and the ends for which they were created
The Jacobite rebellion of 1719 : revenge and regrets by PJ Klinger( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jacobite Rebellion of 1719 was an ambitious failed attempt by Spain and the Jacobites to restore the exiled Stuart king James III to the British throne. Because of its failure, the 1719 rebellion has received little attention from scholars. This thesis examines the Jacobite Rebellion of 1719 and the roles that Spain and the Jacobites had during this rebellion and creates a full narrative of the planning and execution of the rebellion. In examining these roles this thesis traces the origins of the rebellion, determines fault for the rebellion's failure, and for the first time reconstructs the weather that played a pivotal role in the failure of the rebellion. This thesis argues that the 1719 rebellion was in fact a significant Jacobite rebellion that could have potentially shifted the balance of power in Europe during the early eighteenth century had it not been for the intervention of the weather
