Papists and Puritans Under Elizabeth I.

Walker, 1967 - 434 pages
Both the Papists and the Puritans in Elizabethan England have received a great deal of attention, but for the most part the two groups have been considered in isolation. They had little love for each other and there were profound differences between them, but they had more in common than they cared to admit. It is the purpose of this book to give some account of the two groups and to suggest some of the ways in which they resembled each other as well as some of the ways in which they differed. The first two chapters deal in a general way with the question of religious unity and with the problems presented to the government by the deviationists. The next four chapters treat the subject chronologically. In each, Papists and Puritans are considered separately, but an attempt is made to indicate some of the factors common to both groups. An epilogue on the Hampton Court Conference of 1604 and the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 enables the author to round off the story and to glance briefly at the future of these two religious movements whose history did not end with the death of Elizabeth I and which were already undergoing significant changes. The concluding chapter touches on a number of problems which arise from a consideration of these two deeply committed groups of religious deviationists who were unable to accept the official view.--Adapted from dust jacket.
