What People are Saying About This
A significant and representative series of selections surveying the religious landscape of a spiritually tumultuous era of English history. This fine volume is a highly useful introduction to religion and theology in early seventeenth-century England.
There is something here for everyone, from the overwrought invective of the likes of Montagu and Prynne to the evocative, almost lyrical language of John Donne. Her introductions to each selection clearly situates them in their contexts, making them fit together as an organic whole. Any reader seeking to understand the church during this most important phase of its history should begin with this volume.
This book covers the whole spectrum of Protestant belief and experience in Early Stuart times. Scholars and students will be deeply grateful for this book as Shuger brings clarity and order to a highly confusing scene.
