Religion, culture, and society in early modern Britain : essays in honour of Patrick Collinson by Anthony Fletcher( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume seventeen distinguished historians of early modern Britain pay tribute to an outstanding scholar and teacher. Several present reviews of major areas of debate: of the significance of the regulations which determined the social and legal status of professional actors in Elizabethan England, of Protestant ideas about marriage, of the political significance of the Anglo-Scottish Union, of relations between the Churches of England, Scotland and Ireland under the early Stuarts, and of the riddle of the inner dynamic of the experience of emigration to New England. Case-studies in the social and religious history of the period include the relationship between ideas of cleanliness and godliness, the flowering of the notion of unitive Protestantism in two declarations on behalf of the National Church and provincial preaching at a moment of political crisis in the north of England. Three essays draw on literary evidence to explore attitudes to men of war, the use of the murder pamphlet as a Puritan conversion narrative and the service provided by scholarly readers for politically influential public figures. Two essays make impressive use of fieldwork to reveal how the churches of James I and VI's two kingdoms were furnished and how the gardens of Sir Nicholas and Sir Francis Bacon illuminate their minds and attitudes. The European dimension is represented by an essay on Nicolas Pithou's history of the Reformation in the city of Troyes." "This very wide-ranging and fascinating collection of essays will appeal both to specialists in the period and to those interested in the social and cultural history of early modern Britain."--Jacket

Christopher Marlowe and English renaissance culture by DARRYLL. ROBERTS, PETER GRANTLEY( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the title suggests, these essays on Christopher Marlowe attempt to place the writer and dramatist in the context of the cultural history of his period, with particular reference to its dynamics of social change, aspiration, exploration, conflict and discordance. As such, what characterizes this collection from the conference held in 1993 at the University of Kent at Canterbury, Marlowe's birthplace, to mark the fourth centenary of his death, is its interdisciplinarity. Several of the essays exemplify the variety of approaches which may be taken to the writing of cultural and intellectual history. While fresh perspectives are offered by adducing new documentary and textual evidence, and through the rereading of Marlowe's work in the context of Elizabethan literary Renaissance, space is given in the selection to different interpretations to stimulate debate
Pilgrimage : the English experience from Becket to Bunyan( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pilgrimage was a central feature of medieval English life which affected history, politics, art and literature. The shrines were destroyed during the Reformation and pilgrimage stopped, yet the idea of pilgrimage continued - refashioned - in Protestant theology and in the exploration of the newly discovered world. By reaching beyond the Reformation to explore the transformation of the idea of the pilgrim in Protestant spirituality, this book confronts the religious experience of the English laity over half a millennium. The attractions for pilgrims of journeys to Jerusalem and to Canterbury and other English religious shrines are considered, while the political aspects of pilgrimage are discussed in relation to the architectural, documentary and pictorial evidence for the expression of lay piety in late medieval England. The cult of St Thomas of Canterbury is studied in particular detail, up to the suppression and in the revival of the cult in the sixteenth century
