English Presbyterianism, 1590–1640.

English Presbyterianism, 1590–1640. This book offers an alternative interpretation of pre-Civil War England, challenging the standard narrative that English presbyterianism was successfully extinguished from the late sixteenth century until its prominent public resurgence during the English Civil War. From their emergence in the 1570s, English presbyterians posed a threat to the Church of England, and, in 1592, the English crown arrested the leaders of the presbyterian movement.

This book offers an alternative interpretation of pre-Civil War England, challenging the standard narrative that English presbyterianism was successfully extinguished from the late sixteenth century until its prominent public resurgence during the English Civil War. From their emergence in the 1570s, English presbyterians posed a threat to the Church of England, and, in 1592, the English crown arrested the leaders of the presbyterian movement. Ha shows that, during the ensuing half century of apparent silence, English presbyterians remained continually active. They made a concerted effort, for example, to build an alliance with common lawyers against episcopal authority. Yet they also sought to prove the compatibility of their church government with royal supremacy. They agitated for further reformation of the Church of England, but by the early seventeenth century they had contributed to the birth of 'independency' and to puritan appeals to neo-Roman views of liberty.

THis is a scholarly book, but well worth publishing. I used it for a book I was writing on the seventeenth century. Great.

English Presbyterianism is, unsurprisingly, often overlooked (what with the Scottish Reformation and all). As glad as I am to see an academic treatment of the subject, I couldn't help but notice mention of the Rev. Richard Denton is conspicuously absent. Denton was an English Presbyterian who matriculated from St. Catharine's, Cambridge and was ordained an Anglican priest in 1623. It is not known exactly when or why he became a Presbyterian, but it probably had something to do with the re-issue of the "Declaration of Sports" in 1633. By the end of the year 1635 he had led his congregation in West Yorkshire to Massachusetts, then to Connecticut, and later to New Netherland. He returned to England in 1659 and died there in 1663. While I realize Denton may have had more to do with the development of Presbyterianism in Colonial America than in England, he was certainly among those whose story would provide much-needed context.
