About this book
This volume takes a fresh look at the recent controversy over the character of the Early Stuart Church. The rival beliefs and practices of both clergy and laity are explored in a wide-ranging collection of original essays which investigate complementary themes including the royal supremacy, episcopal government, parish religion and theological disputes. Each is firmly grounded in its political and social context. Among the contributors are several leading figures in the current academic debates, as well as a number of younger scholars presenting their ideas for the first time.
