The nature of the English Revolution : essays by J. S Morrill( Book )

John Morrill has been at the forefront of modern attempts to explain the origins, nature and consequences of the English Revolution. These twenty essays -- seven either specially written or reproduced from generally inaccessible sources -- illustrate the main scholarly debates to which he has so richly contributed: the tension between national and provincial politics; the idea of the English Revolution as ""the last of the European Wars of Religion''; its British dimension; and its political sociology. Taken together, they offer a remarkably coherent account of the period as a whole

Public duty and private conscience in seventeenth-century England : essays presented to G.E. Aylmer by J. S Morrill( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tension between public duty and private conscience is a central theme of English history in the seventeenth century, when established authorities were questioned and violently disrupted. It has also been an important theme in the work of one of the foremost historians of the period, G.E. Aylmer. It makes, therefore, an especially appropriate subject for this volume." "The contributors are leading historians, all of whom are friends, colleagues, or former students of Gerald Aylmer. Their topics range from contemporary writings on conscience and duty to the particular problems faced by individuals and groups, both Puritan and Royalist, at the centre and in the localities. These scholarly and original studies throw new light on the innumerable dilemmas of conscience of men and women during this period, and together make a distinguished contribution to seventeenth-century history."--Jacket

11 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text caused a major stir when it was first published in 1976. Redirecting scholarly attention to the county communties, it reassessed their role in the events of the 1630s and 1640s, claiming they were far more independent of London and the national leadership than usually supposed, and that provincial opinion was itself a powerful actor in the countdown to civil war. Much work has since appeared to confirm or modify these findings. In this reset second edition the original survives largely untouched; but now includes entirely new histiorographic commentary on the text and supporting docu
