Christendom destroyed : Europe 1517-1648 by Mark Greengrass( Book )

48 editions published between 2014 and 2020 in 6 languages and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This latest addition to the landmark Penguin History of Europe series is a fascinating study of 16th and 17th century Europe and the fundamental changes which led to the collapse of Christendom and established the geographical and political frameworks of Western Europe as we know it. From peasants to princes, no one was untouched by the spiritual and intellectual upheaval of this era. Martin Luther's challenge to church authority forced Christians to examine their beliefs in ways that shook the foundations of their religion. The subsequent divisions, fed by dynastic rivalries and military changes, fundamentally altered the relations between ruler and ruled. Geographical and scientific discoveries challenged the unity of Christendom as a belief-community. Europe, with all its divisions, emerged instead as a geographical projection. It was reflected in the mirror of America, and refracted by the eclipse of Crusade in ambiguous relationships with the Ottomans and Orthodox Christianity. Chronicling these dramatic changes, Thomas More, Shakespeare, Montaigne and Cervantes created works which continue to resonate with us. Christendom Destroyed is a rich tapestry that fosters a deeper understanding of Europe's identity today"--

Religion, politics, and society in sixteenth-century England( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of hitherto unpublished material sheds important light on the English court and its relationship with a wider political society in the sixteenth century. The 'Journall' of political events covering 1547-52 and 1559-1562, possibly by the 'commonwealth man' John Hayles, offers arresting insights on court politics, foreign affairs and events in the life of London. It is published alongside a related account of the rivalry between the Dukes of Somerset and Northumberland. Court religious ceremonial is illustrated through an edition of regulations for the royal chapel. The memoir of Jean Malliet, sent to England to solicit a loan for the beleaguered city of Geneva in 1582-3, demonstrates the 'Calvinist international' at work. A tranche of letters from Sir Robert Cecil to Sir Christopher Hatton offers fresh material on court politics in this period
Samuel Hartlib and universal reformation : studies in intellectual communication( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hartlib (originally from Elbing) settled in England in the late 1620s and lived there until his death in 1662. His aspirations formed a distinctive and influential strand in English intellectual life during those revolutionary decades. This volume reflects the variety of the theoretical and practical interests of Hartlib's circle and presents them in their continental context. The editors of the volume are all attached to the Hartlib Papers Project at the University of Sheffield, a major collaborative research effort to exploit the (largely untapped) resources of the surviving Hartlib manuscripts. In an introduction to the volume they explore the background to the Hartlib circle and provide the context in which the essays should be read

Nostradamus : a healer of souls in the Renaissance by Denis Crouzet( Book )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most enigmatic figures in history, Nostradamus - apothecary, astrologer and soothsayer - is a continual source of fascination. Indeed, his predictions are so much the stock-in-trade of the wildest merchants of imminent Doom that one could be forgiven for ignoring the fact that Michel de Nostredame, 1503-1566, was a figure firmly rooted in the society of the French Renaissance. In this bold new account of the life and work of Nostradamus, Denis Crouzet shows that any attempt to interpret his Prophecies at face value is misguided. Nostradamus was not trying to predict the future. He saw himself, rather, as 'prophesying', i.e. bringing the Word of God to humankind. In a century marked by the extreme violence of the Wars of Religion, Nostradamus' profound Christian faith placed him among the 'evangelicals' of his generation. Rejecting the confessional tensions tearing Europe apart, he sought to coax his readers towards an interiorised piety, based on the essential presence of Christ. Like Rabelais, for whom laughter was a therapy to help one cope with the misery of the times, Nostradamus saw himself as a physician of the soul as much as of the body. His unveiling of the menacing and horrendous events which await us in the future was a way of frightening his readers into the realisation that inner hatred was truly the greatest peril of all, to which the sole remedy was to live in the love and peace of Christ. This inspired interpretation penetrates the imaginative world of Nostradamus, a man whose life is as mysterious as his writings. It shows him in a completely new dimension, securing for him a significant place among the major thinkers of the Renaissance"--

Historiens d'Europe, historiens de l'Europe by Denis Crouzet( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today we are experiencing a moment of rejection of a European ideal, which has, among other things, conditioned more than seven decades of peace on the old continent. Why this crisis which is the bottom of trade of the populist demagogues, in France as elsewhere? How to react to neutralize the forces resorting to the absurd anachronism, to the negationnist error, to the polemic caricature to better mask obscurantist ideologies? The answer given Historians of Europe, historians of Europe is that Europe suffers from a deficit of both historicity and historicization, that the European adventure proposed to the general public is often reduced to a truncated adventure and partial. Much has been written about European construction, about the past of Europe as a collection of national histories and interconflictual temporalities. From Europe as a common referent, there have been approaches, but limited to discontinuous sequences. Yet since the beginning of the XX th century, very large British historians, Italian, German, Russian, French, Belgian, Dutch worked around Europe. Some have invented or promoted another art of writing history by making Europe the instrument allowing a renewal of problems. The others wrote a story that was intended to show that Europe was in the long term a substructure of the imaginary more or less consciously transcending identities. To reinterpret by history the figure of hope and freedom of the spirit that Europe carries in its long duration, and that the patient work of European historians has not ceased to value, to find a desire to be the second part of the XX th century has only realize this is the project of this book which is a book of combat and defense of self-awareness that is necessarily aware of what the other is self .--
La maison de Salomon : histoire du patronage scientifique et technique en France et en Angleterre au XVIIe siècle by Aurélien Ruellet( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in French and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En revenant sur les carrières de dizaines de savants et techniciens français et anglais du XVIIe siècle, cet ouvrage éclaire des aspects méconnus de la formation de l'État moderne et de l'émergence de la science expérimentale. L'enquête montre que loin de l'image classique du mécénat aristocratique et royal, le patronage dont bénéficiaient ces scientifiques revêtait bien des aspects et mobilisait de nombreux mécènes au petit pied, dans l'administration monarchique et ailleurs.

Les Lumières radicales de la Révolution anglaise : Samuel Hartlib et les réseaux de l'Intelligence (1600-1660) by Stéphane Haffemayer( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cet ouvrage ressort de l'analyse des archives de Samuel Hartlib, cet intellectuel protestant allemand réfugié à Londres de 1620 à sa mort en 1662. Cet Intelligencer, disciple de Bacon, s'évertua pendant trente ans à faire évoluer la politique anglaise dans le sens de l'idéal réformateur qu'il partageait avec un milieu intellectuel puritain. De l'officieuse diplomatie protestante internationale menée, dans l'ombre, pendant la "tyrannie de Onze ans" à la lumière de l'activité parlementaire des années 1640, Hartlib rejoignit Cromwell en qui il vit l'énergie réformatrice capable de surmonter les oppositions parlementaires. Informateur politique, promoteur d'expérimentation scientifique, Hartlib formula l'essentiel des propositions qui firent le dynamisme intellectuel de l'Angleterre de la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle."--Page 4 of cover
