Humanism and Calvinism : Andrew Melville and the universities of Scotland, 1560-1625 by Steven J Reid( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book surveys the transformation of Scotland's medieval and Catholic university system into a greatly-expanded Protestant one in the decades following the Scottish Reformation of 1560. It also assesses the contribution of religious reformer Andrew Melville to this process in the context of broader social and cultural developments. Through systematic use of largely neglected manuscript sources, the book offers fresh perspectives on both Andrew Melville and the development of Scottish higher education post-1560
Ramus, pedagogy, and the liberal arts : Ramism in Britain and the wider world( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no current work that offers such a broad survey of Ramus and Ramism, or that looks at him in such an interdisciplinary fashion. Ramus' influence extended across many disciplines and this book skilfully weaves together studies in intellectual history, pedagogy, literature, philosophy and the history of science. It will prove a useful starting point for those interested in Ramus and his impact, as well as serving to redefine the field of Ramist studies for future scholars

Neo-Latin literature and literary culture in early modern Scotland( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Neo-Latin Literature and Literary Culture in Early Modern Scotland is the first detailed examination of the vibrant corpus of literature written by Scots in Latin in the late-sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The essays in this collection draw on several recent ground-breaking research projects to examine a wide variety of aspects of Scottish Latin culture, including: Scottish participation in Latinate humanist circles across Europe, particularly in France and England; scientific, philosophical and didactic Latin culture in Scotland during the Scientific Revolution; and the reception of classical literature in Scotland, particularly Virgil, Horace, and Ovid. It also features in-depth examinations and translated excerpts of several key works, including the Delitiae Poetarum Scotorum (Amsterdam, 1637) and The Muses' Welcome (Edinburgh, 1617)"--Page 4 of cover
Andrew Melville (1545-1622) : writings, reception, and reputation by Roger A Mason( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the exception of John Knox, no one did more to shape the Scottish Reformation than Andrew Meville. Remembered chiefly as a firebrand defender of radical Presbyterianism and reformer of the Scottish university system, his broader contributions to the cultural development of early modern Scotland have largely been marginalised in subsequent historiography. Yet, as this collection shows, Melvillle was much more than simply a parochial reformer - rather he was an influential member of a pan-European humanist network.This neglect may stem in part from the fact that almost all Melville's surviving writings are in Latin. As such, one of the main concerns of this volume is, for the first time, to provide a comprehensive listing of the range of poetry and prose attributed to Melville (who left very little in the way of formal theological or ecclesiological treatises) and to begin the process of elucidating these texts and the contexts in which they were written. At the same time, partly through the use of this material, the volume further illuminates Melville's biography and explores other neglected aspects of his life. While the volume contributes to an on-going process that has seen Melville's role as an ecclesiastical politician and educational reformer challenged and diminished, it also seeks to redress the balance by opening up other dimensions of Melville's career and intellectual life and shedding new light on the broader cultural context of Jacobean Scotland and Britain

James VI and noble power in Scotland 1578-1603 by Miles Kerr-Peterson( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James VI and Noble Power in Scotland explores how Scotland was governed in the late sixteenth century by examining the dynamic between King James and his nobles from the end of his formal minority in 1578 until his accession to the English throne in 1603. The collection assesses James' relationship with his nobility, detailing how he interacted with them, and how they fought, co-operated with and understood each other. It includes case studies from across Scotland from the Highlands to the Borders and burghs, and on major individual events such as the famous Gowrie conspiracy. Themes such as the nature of government in Scotland and religion as a shaper of policy and faction are addressed, as well as broader perspectives on the British and European nobility, bloodfeuds, and state-building in the early modern period. The ten chapters together challenge well-established notions that James aimed to be a modern, centralising monarch seeking to curb the traditional structures of power, and that the period represented a period of crisis for the traditional and unrestrained culture of feuding nobility. It is demonstrated that King James was a competent and successful manager of his kingdom who demanded a new level of obedience as a 'universal king'. This volume offers students of Stuart Britain a fresh and valuable perspective on James and his reign

Education in post-Reformation Scotland : Andrew Melville and the University of St Andrews, 1560-1606 by Steven John Reid( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Andrew Melville (1545-1622) was the leader of the Presbyterian wing of the Scottish Kirk between 1574 and 1607, and he and his colleagues were a perpetual irritant to James VI and I in his attempts to establish a royal and Episcopal dominance over the Kirk. Yet much of Melville's reputation has been based on the seventeenth-century Presbyterian historical narratives written by the likes of James Melville (Andrew's nephew) and David Calderwood. These partisan accounts formed the basis of modern historiography in Thomas M'Crie's monumentally influential Life of Andrew Melville. Modern historians broadly agree that Melville's portrayal as a powerful and decisive church leader in these narratives is greatly exaggerated, and that he was at best an influential voice in the Kirk who was quickly marginalised by the adult James VI. However, only James Kirk has commented at any length on Melville's other role in Jacobean Scotland--that of developing and reforming the Scottish universities. Melville revitalised the near-defunct Glasgow University between 1574 and 1580, and from 1580 to 1607 was principal of St Mary's College, St Andrews, Scotland's only divinity college. He was also rector of the University of St Andrews between 1590 and 1597. This thesis provides a detailed account of Melville's personal role in the reform and expansion of the Scottish universities. This includes an analysis of his direct work at Glasgow, but focuses primarily on St Andrews, using the untapped archival sources held there and at the Scottish National Library and Archives to create a detailed picture of the development of the University after the Reformation. This thesis also evaluates the intellectual content of Melville's reform programme, both as it developed during his time in Paris, Poitiers and Geneva, and as we see it in action in St Andrews
