Sixteenth-century Scotland : essays in honour of Michael Lynch by Julian Goodare( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays demonstrates the vitality of the political, cultural and religious history of Scotland in the era of the Renaissance and Reformation. It is a Festschrift for Michael Lynch, who recently retired as the Sir William Fraser Professor of Scottish History and Palaeography at the University of Edinburgh. It includes essays on politics, religion and towns, and on the literature and culture of the royal court and the common people. The essays all illuminate the 'long sixteenth century', c. 1500-1650, which Professor Lynch has established as a distinct period."--Jacket
Mary Stewart, queen in three kingdoms( Book )

8 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of essays, a team of historians reassesses the life and historical significance of Mary Stewart. Best remembered as Mary, Queen of Scots, she was also, briefly, Queen of France and, for almost 30 years, Catholic claimant to the Protestant throne of England. This is the first book to examine her career in all three kingdoms. The chapters explore Mary's early years in France, highlighting the enduring influence of her French connections on her later actions and attitudes. They follow her return to Scotland, focusing on the contentious years of her personal reign: was Mary a successful and astute ruler or was she the inept and incompetent monarch of tradition? Finally, the volume looks at her long exile in captivity in England, reconsidering her involvement in the conspiracies against Elizabeth I. Throughout, the contributors emphasize the complex interconnections between French, Scottish and English policy and interests. This book offers a new interpretation of Mary's life, providing a range of insights into the interplay of religions and politics, international diplomacy and dynastic intrigue in which Mary played a major role. - Publisher

13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Renaissance in Scotland is a collection of original essays on a wide range of topics concerning the cultural history of Scotland. The period concerned extends from the late fifteenth through to the early seventeenth century." "The individual studies take various aspects of culture as their starting-points: literature; the history of manuscripts and printed books; libraries; the law; the universities; music; education; social, political and ecclesiastical history. The essays, however, all take full account of the larger context provided by the age of humanism and reform, as this was manifested in Scotland. This book contains an abundance of new information and offers many challenging new insights and interpretations. It will be of interest to all those concerned with the cultural and intellectual history of Scotland and of northern Europe in general."--Jacket
