The Old Enemies 1st edition

£16.99

Product description

The Old enemies : Catholic and Protestant in Nineteenth-century English Culture Century by Michael Wheeler. Published by Cambridge 2006. Dust jacket shows signs of slight folding and creasing on top edges. Black hard cover has scuff marks along front base edge and blemishes. Small water stain at bottom right corner of pages up to 44. Page thirteen has a small fold to top edge and rest appear crisp and clean. Inscription on title page.

Divisions between Catholics and Protestants have been a feature of English history since the Reformation. Even into the industrial nineteenth century, age-old theological disagreements were the cause of religious and cultural conflicts. The Old Enemies asks why these ancient divisions were so deep, why they continued into the nineteenth century and how novelists and poets, theologians and preachers, historians and essayists reinterpreted the religious debates. Michael Wheeler, a leading authority on the literature and theology of the period, explains how each side misunderstood the other's deeply held beliefs about history, authority, doctrine and spirituality, and, conversely, how these theological conflicts were a source of inspiration and creativity in the arts. This wide-ranging, well-illustrated study sheds much new light on nineteenth-century history, literature and religion.
