The Elizabethan Puritan Movement

£11.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book is in very good condition, with only slight creasing and wear to the top and bottom of the dust jacket. There are two small tears (less than 1 cm) to top and bottom of the dust jacket. Otherwise, all pages and the cover are clean and intact.

This is an authoritative and revealing study of an important yet relatively unexplored force in English History. The Elizabethan puritan movement arose from discontent with the religious settlement of 1599 and the desire among many of the clergy and laity for a 'further reformation'. The more radical wished to change the structure of the Church, substituting a Presbyterian order for episcopacy. They became, in fact, a revolutionary movement, whose clandestine organization and agitation through parliament constituted a serious threat to the state. It is only in this age of comparable subversive activities that the full significance and danger of the movement can be measured.

Dr Collinson is well known among the historians who, for fourteen years, has been engaged in detecting the members of this underground organization and its sympathizers. he implicates the nobility - including the queen's favourite, the Earl of Leicester - the country gentry, London citizens, and above all the godly, energetic preachers, who included a genius of conspiracy, John Field. The extent and gravity of the movement are revealed for the first time. Anyone interested in Elizabethan history will welcome this study of the people so largely responsible for the dynamic of the age, while for students it will rank as one of the essential books on sixteenth century history.
