The Reformation : a history by Patrick Collinson( Book )

27 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and Korean and held by 1,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Reformation, Patrick Collinson offers a concise yet thorough overview of the drastic ecumenical revolution of the late medieval and Renaissance eras. Whether looking at the sum effect of such disparate elements as the humanist philosophy of Desiderius Erasmus and the impact on civilization of movable-type printing and "vulgate" scriptures or defining the differences between the evangelical (Lutheran) and reformed (Calvinist) churches, Collinson makes clear how the battles for men's lives often started in the battles for their souls."--Jacket

He also investigatesthe no less inscrutable religious position adopted by the by the nototious turncoat

This England is a celebration of 'Englishness' in the sixteenth century, and examines the growing conviction of 'Englishness' through the rapidly developing English language; the reinforcement of cultural nationalism as a result of the Protestant Reformation; the national and international situation of England at a time of acute national catastrophe; and of Queen Elizabeth I, the last of her line, who remained unmarried throughout her reign, refusing to even discuss the succession to her throne. In a series of essays, Collinson explores the conviction among leading Elizabethans that they were

11 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, a distinguished international group of scholars examines the idea of the 'monarchical republic' from the 1530s to the 1640s, and tests the concept from a variety of points of view. New suggestions are advanced about the pattern of development of quasi-republican tendencies and of opposition to them, and about their relation to the politics of earlier and later periods."--Jacket

From Cranmer to Sancroft by Patrick Collinson( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patrick Collinson is the leading historian of English religion in the years after the Reformation. This collection of essays ranges from Thomas Cranmer, who was burnt at the stake after repeated recantations in 1556, to William Sancroft, the only other post-Reformation archbishop of Canterbury to have been deprived of office. Patrick Collinson's work explores the complex interactions between the inclusive and exclusive tendencies in English Protestantism, focusing both on famous figures, such as John Foxe and Richard Hooker, and on the individual reactions of lesser figures to the religious ch
Conferences and combination lectures in the Elizabethan church : Dedham and Bury St Edmunds, 1582-1590 by Patrick Collinson( )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the heart of Elizabeth I's reign, a secret conference of clergymen met in and around Dedham, Essex, on a monthly basis in order to discuss matters of local and national interest. Their collected papers, a unique survival from the clandestine world of early English nonconformity, are here printed in full for the first time, together with a hitherto unpublished narrative by the Suffolk minister, Thomas Rogers, which throws a flood of light on similar, if more public, clerical activity in and around Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, during the same period. Taken together, the two texts provide an unrivalled insight into the minds and the methods of that network of 'godly' ministers whose professed aim was to modify the strict provisions of the Elizabethan settlement of religion, both by ceaseless lobbying and by practical example. The editors' introduction accordingly emphasizes the complex nature of the English protestant tradition between the Tudor mid-century and the accession of James I, as well as attempting to plot the politico-ecclesiastical developments of the 1580s in some detail. A comprehensive biographical register of the members of the Dedham conference, of the Bury St. Edmunds lecturers, and of many other important names mentioned in the texts, completes the volume."--BOOK JACKET

The sixteenth century, 1485-1603 by Patrick Collinson( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book surveys the transformation of the British Isles in the sixteenth century. At the start of the period, England was an effectively governed monarchy, its government regal but also consensual. Yet its authority was not easily enforced beyond the more developed south-east and midlands and it was exercised indirectly in Wales and Ireland, while Scotland was an independent monarchy. In Europe, England was a significant trading partner, but its language unknown. By the early seventeenth century, the London-based English government had developed and extended its effective authority over the north and Wales, Ireland was subjugated and colonised, the English and Scottish crowns united. The established churches of the British Isles had broken away from the Roman Catholic Europe and were now national, royal, and protestant. With the English Bible and Shakespeare, English had reached the maturity of a potential world language, while the British peoples stood poised on the edge of a global expansion. In this book, a team of leading scholars consider these important transformations in the English monarchical polity, ranging widely to consider relations between the various parts of the Isles throughout the sixteenth century. Chapters focus on political history and ideas of the state; the change in religion; Britain's overseas role; the economy and society; and the Renaissance in cultural life in this period. The book also includes a detailed chronology, maps, illustrations, and a guide to further reading to provide a full and dynamic picture of this significant era in British history
Religion, culture, and society in early modern Britain : essays in honour of Patrick Collinson by Anthony Fletcher( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 483 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

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume seeks to address a relatively neglected subject in the field of English reformation studies: the reformation in its urban context.

Belief and practice in Reformation England : a tribute to Patrick Collinson from his students( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection assembles twelve wide-ranging essays which present fresh interpretations of religious and social change in Reformation England, from the end of the Middle Ages to the seventeenth century. It presents new studies concerning the inculcation of Protestantism within the structure of the parishes, among the laity and throughout the institution of the English Church. The essays offer sophisticated analyses of the influence of theological debate, the impact of official religious policy and early print, and also the importance of doctrinal change, which create a mosaic of impressions of English religion in this particularly tumultuous time."--BOOK JACKET
Richard Bancroft and Elizabethan anti-Puritanism by Patrick Collinson( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This major new study is an exploration of the Elizabethan Puritan movement through the eyes of its most determined and relentless opponent, Richard Bancroft, later Archbishop of Canterbury. It analyses his obsession with the perceived threat to the stability of the church and state presented by the advocates of radical presbyterian reform. The book forensically examines Bancroft's polemical tracts and archive of documents and letters, casting important new light on religious politics and culture"--
