Artistic and Cultural Exchanges
between Europe and Asia,

Rethinking Markets,
Workshops and Collections
Edited by Michael North,
Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universitt, Germany
Traditionally, relations between Europe and Asia have
been studied in a hegemonic perspective, with Europe
as the dominant political and economic center. This
book focuses on cultural exchange between different
European and Asian civilizations, with the reciprocal
complexities of cultural transfers and exchange at
the center of observation. By investigating art markets,
workshops and collections in Europe and Asia the
authors exemplify the varieties of cultural exchange.
The book examines the changing roles of Asian objects
in European material culture and collections and puts
a special emphasis on the reception of European visual
arts in colonial settlements in Asia as well as in different
Asian societies.

Communes and Despots in
Medieval and Renaissance Italy
Edited by Bernadette Paton, OUP, UK and
John Law, University of Wales, Swansea, UK
Building on important issues highlighted by the late
Philip Jones, this volume explores key aspects of the city
state in late medieval and renaissance Italy, particularly
the nature and quality of different types of government.
It focuses on the apparently antithetical but often similar
governmental forms represented by the republics and
despotisms of the period. Beginning with a reprint of
Jones original 1965 article, the volume then provides
eighteen new essays that re-examine the issues he
raised in light of modern scholarship. Taking a broad
chronological and geographic approach, the collection
offers a timely re-evaluation of a question of perennial
interest to urban and political historians, as well as
those with an interest in medieval and renaissance Italy.
Includes c.22 b&w, 10 colour illustrations and 6 maps.

The Politics of Provisions: Food
Riots, Moral Economy, and Market
Transition in England, c. 15501850
John Bohstedt, University of Tennessee, USA
The History of Retailing and Consumption
The politics of provisions - forceful negotiations over
sustenance - has created surprising contests in world
history, particularly in times of market transition. In
England a politics of provisions evolved in a dialogue
between popular riots and paternalist subsistence
policies from Tudor dearths to the Victorian embrace
of free-market doctrines. Hence provision politics was
a core ingredient of both state-formation and of the
emergence of the rst market economy and society
in England. This book is the rst full-scale critical
revision of E.P. Thompsons seminal model of the moral
economy of the crowd, which has had huge inuence
across the social sciences. It is the rst synthesis of the
many dispersed studies of three centuries of marketing
and negotiations by riot over subsistence. By explaining
such long-term shifts in patterns of political negotiation
from parish-pump to Privy Council, this study offers a
new view of why food riots were a more compelling
and lasting bone of contention than enclosures, wages
or votes.

Catholic Gentry in English Society
The Throckmortons of Coughton
from Reformation to Emancipation
Edited by Peter Marshall, University of Warwick, UK
and Geoffrey Scott, Abbot of Douai and President
of the Catholic Archives Society
Foreword by David Starkey
Catholic Christendom, 13001700
This volume advances scholarly understanding of
English Catholicism in the early modern period through
a series of essays addressing aspects of the history of the
Throckmorton family. Despite their persistent adherence
to Catholicism over several centuries, leading members
of the family continued to be involved in politics on the
national stage in the face of overt Protestant hostility.
Leading historians of Catholic England investigate the
strategies the Throckmortons employed in this difcult
balancing act, and reect on what this tells us, about
both English Catholicism and wider English society.
In so doing the volume contributes to recent efforts
to integrate the study of Catholicism into the mainstream
of English social and political history, transcending
its traditional status as a special interest category,
remote from or subordinate to the central narratives
of historical change.

Clerical Celibacy in the West:
c.11001700
Helen Parish, University of Reading, UK
Catholic Christendom, 13001700
The issue of clerical celibacy has played a long and
profound role in the history of the Christian church.
From the rst Christian centuries to the present day, the
question of whether clergy should be allowed to marry
has attracted a vast amount of theological attention
and debate. Yet despite the acknowledged importance
of this issue, there have been few attempts to present
an objective and historical study of the origins and
development of clerical celibacy. In order to address
this lacuna, Dr. Parish offers a reassessment of the
history of sacerdotal celibacy, examining the emergence
and evolution of the celibate priesthood in the Latin
church from the beginning of the twelfth to the end
of the seventeenth centuries. Around this core area of
study, the book also considers the inuence of the early
apostolic church and the example of the Greek church.

Fathers and Godfathers
Spiritual Kinship in Early-Modern Italy
Guido Alfani, Bocconi University, Italy
Catholic Christendom, 13001700
Exploring the changing theological and social nature
of spiritual kinship and godparenthood between 1450
and 1650, this book explores how these medieval
concepts were developed and utilized by the Catholic
Church in an era of reform and challenge. It demonstrates
how such ties continued to be of major social importance
throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries,
but were often used in ways not always coherent with
their original religious meaning, and which could have
unexpected social consequences.

kinship: the origins of a distinctive social institution;

We are deeply in Anne Overells debt. She excavates

of Italy, and shows how important it became to both
Reformation and Counter-Reformation in Tudor England.
This is a triumph of detective work, which should
encourage Tudor historians never to neglect

A Study of Popular Thought

Thanks to its character as a rising of the commons,
and the survival of extensive documentary evidence,
the pilgrimage of grace offers a fascinating insight into
how the people of the north of England, on the eve of

and politics. In this book, Michael Bush opens up an
alternative and dynamic means of exploring the popular
mentality of the time through an examination of the
wide variety of sources generated by the rebels, rather
than relying on the social, political and religious views
set out in contemporary treaties and sermons towing
the governments line.

Cultural Change Among
the Jews of Early Modern Italy
Robert Bonl, The Hebrew University,
Jerusalem, Israel
Variorum Collected Studies Series: CS945
The articles collected in this volume display Robert
Bonls pioneering reappraisal of the economic and
socio-cultural history of the Jews of Italy during the
Renaissance and the early modern period, focusing
on their encounter with and incorporation into the
Italian society that surrounded them. Rather than
thinking in terms of challenge and response, and the
passive surrender of the Jews to the inuence of their
Christian surroundings, Bonls exploration of the
evidence shows it mirroring their conscious choice to
preserve a distinctive Jewish identity while at the same
time being an integral part of the socio-economic and
cultural fabric of the environment in which they lived.

The Birth of Mankind
Otherwise Named, The Womans Book
Edited by Elaine Hobby,
Loughborough University, UK
Literary and Scientic Cultures of Early Modernity
(an) outstanding new editionCopiously but
unobtrusively annotated and scrupulously presented,
Hobbys edition does a marvellous service to scholarship.
She provides a clear account of the books complicated
textual historyThomas Raynalde was committed
to bringing hidden knowledge to light and to making
abstruse arts accessible to general readers. Elaine
Hobbys own achievements are similar.
Times Literary Supplement
Between 1540 and 1654, The Byrth of Mankynde
was a huge commercial success. Offering information
on fertility, pregnancy, birth and infant care, and written
in a chatty, colloquial style, it inuenced most other
literary works of the period bearing on sex, reproduction
and childcare. Until now, this important work has been
unavailable except for a microlm of the 1654 edition.
For this new annotated edition of the 1560 version,
Elaine Hobby has modernized the spelling and included
informative notes. In her critical introduction, she
not only traces the development of the book from its
German origins but also shows how early-modern ideas
about the reproductive process combined ancient,
medieval and contemporary ideas. Combining editorial
rigor with an eye towards the needs of the informed
non-specialist, Hobby has made available a text that
will be useful to scholars and students in a range
of academic disciplines, including literature, history,
and women and gender studies.

Biblical Scholarship, Science and
Politics in Early Modern England
Thomas Browne and the
Thorny Place of Knowledge
Kevin Killeen, University of York, UK
Literary and Scientic Cultures of Early Modernity
Kevin Killeen addresses one of the most enigmatic
of seventeenth century writers, Thomas Browne (1605
1682), whose voracious intellectual pursuits provide
an unparalleled insight into how early modern scholarly
culture understood the relations of science, politics
and religion. The book centers on a reassessment of
Brownes most elaborate text, Pseudodoxia Epidemica,
his vast encyclopaedia of error and through this explores
the multivalent nature of early-modern enquiry.

The Dissemination of News and
the Emergence of Contemporaneity
in Early Modern Europe
Edited by Brendan Dooley,
University College Cork, Ireland
Modern communications allow the instant dissemination
of information and images, creating a sensation of virtual
presenceor contemporaneityat events that occur
far away. But how were time and space conceived
before modernity? When did this begin to change in
Europe? To help answer such questions, this volume looks
at the exchange of information and the development of
communications networks at the dawn of journalism,
when widespread public and private networks rst
emerged for the transmission of political news. The
collection offers the rst panoramic view of the new
ways stories were born, grew and matured during their
transmission from source to source.

China and the Birth of
Globalization in the 16th Century
Dennis O. Flynn and Arturo Girldez,
both at University of the Pacic, USA
Variorum Collected Studies Series: CS938
Including 11 essays published over the last 15 years,
this volume by Dennis O. Flynn and Arturo Girldez
concerns the origins and early development of
globalization. It opens with their 1995 Silver Spoon
essay and a theoretical essay published in 2002.
Subsequent sections deal with Pacic Ocean exchanges,
interconnections between the Spanish, Ottoman, Japanese
and Chinese empires, and the necessity of multidisciplinary
approaches to global history. The volume follows the
evolution of the authors thinking concerning the central
role of China in the global silver trade, as well as
interrelations among silver and non-silver markets. It
concludes with an argument for incorporating the work
of all academic disciplines when attempting to understand
the history of globalization, advocating an inclusive
historical data base which recognizes contextual
realities and an inductive process of reasoning.

The Pacic World series, published by Ashgate, has
drawn the attention of the academic community to the
importance, impact and History of the Pacic Ocean,
as well as those nations directly or closely connected
with this natural feature, which were either forgotten or
neglected for a long time. It is of the utmost importance
that this kind of History should have the opportunity
to be spread through the academic community, and
Ashgate, along with several researchers, has provided
a much-welcomed series about the subject.
Bulletin of Portuguese and Japanese Studies
The Pacic Rim and the Pacic Century are now
commonplace terms, but the whole Pacic region has
recently been opened up as a eld of historical inquiry.
The aim of this series is to present the historical
developments and processes involved in the multi-
century opening of the Pacic and the linking together
of the lands around and within this great ocean. Particular
attention is paid to interactions among indigenous
peoples on and within the rim, and the incoming
peoples and powers of Asia, Europe and America.
Each volume reprints a set of key studies focusing
on a dened topic, together with a new introduction
and index, and is edited by an expert in the given
subject. This series complements the successful
Variorum series An Expanding World, and at the same
time provides a research-based resource for this important
area of historical study. All 17 volumes in the series are
now available, and the set price represents a signicant
saving on the cost of volumes purchased individually.

Diversity and Difference
in Early Modern London
Jacob Selwood, Georgia State University, USA
Jacob Selwood investigates multiculturalism in London
during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, as well
as developing notions of Englishness. Rather than relying
upon literary or theatrical representations, the study
emphasizes day-to-day practice, drawing upon petitions,
government records, guild minute books and economic
and taxation disputes, offering a new perspective that
will be of interest both to scholars of the early modern
English metropolis and to historians of race, migration,
imperialism and the wider Atlantic world.

Protestantism and the Politics of Religious
Change in the Gloucester Vale, 14831560
Ben Lowe, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton,
USA
St Andrews Studies in Reformation History
Taking the Vale of Gloucester as a case study, the book
refocuses attention onto issues left unnished in the
wake of current Reformation scholarship. By examining
the connections between local gentry, city leaders,
reformers, MPs and royal court ofcials, it illuminates
the broad network of political relationships that was
essential to the success of Protestant reform. It
demonstrates for the rst time how commonwealth
ideology galvanized many of these powerful leaders
toward a new vision of reform that not only served their
own material interests but also provided a new impetus
and sense of duty toward the public good.

The Curse of Ham
in the Early Modern Era
The Bible and the Justications for Slavery
David M. Whitford,
United Theological Seminary, USA
St Andrews Studies in Reformation History
This book explores the biblical story of the Curse
of Ham, and its relationship to the defense of slavery.
It shows how during the Reformation period, the story
began to be interpreted in news ways, that provided
justication for the rapidly expanding, and extremely
lucrative, Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Skilfully weaving
together elements of theology, literature and history,
this book not only provides a fascinating insight into
the ways that issues of religion, economics and race
could collide in the Reformation world, but also
proves essential reading for anyone wishing to try
to comprehend the origins of arguments used to justify
slavery and segregation right up to the 1960s.

Dealings with God
From Blasphemers in Early Modern Zurich
to a Cultural History of Religiousness
Francisca Loetz, University of Zurich, Switzerland
Translated by Rosemary Selle
St Andrews Studies in Reformation History
Blasphemy could be a serious business in early modern
Europe, and those judged to have cursed, abused or
denied God could in some cases nd themselves on
trial for their lives. While such attitudes may appear
draconian to modern eyes, it is clear that in the past,
blasphemy was regarded as a very real threat to society.
Concentrating on the Reformed city of Zurich, this study
examines the cultural, social and theological aspects
of blasphemy in order to better understand exactly
why this should be, and to illuminate the diverse
and sometimes contradictory dynamics at work.
Contents: Foreword; Religion in early modern
history: an approach by way of blasphemers in Zurich;
The offence of blasphemy in early modern Zurich;
Blasphemy in Zurich: historical change and confessional

of both humanism and Protestantism on the education
offered to a wide range of adolescents in the hundreds
of grammar schools operating in England between the
Reformation and the Enlightenment. By placing that
education in the context of Lutheran, Calvinist and
Jesuit education abroad, it offers an overview of the
uses to which Latin and Greek were put in English
schools, and identies the strategies devised by
clergy and laity in England for coping with the tensions
between classical studies and Protestant doctrine. It also
offers a reassessment of the role of the godly in English
education, and demonstrates the many ways in which
a classical education came to be combined with close
support for the English Crown and established church.

both convincing and well illustratedthis book
deserves to be commended as a highly creative
stimulus to our thinking on the period.
Art and Christianity
Conicting attitudes towards devotional art was a major
factor in the confessional divisions that split Reformation
Europe. By presenting essays concerned with both
European subjects and European perceptions of other
cultures, Idols in the Age of Art contributes to ongoing
attempts to globalize the study of European art.
Approaching the Reformation idol as an essentially
international problem, and placing particular emphasis
on cultural encounters, it provides fresh perspectives
on the very nature of Renaissance art, and underscores
how colonial issues came to be often framed in terms
of European religious conicts.

Literature and the Scottish Reformation offers a full-scale

Previous scholarship in this area has tended to dismiss

the essays in this volume reinforce recent work that
challenges the received scholarly consensus by taking
these interests seriously, and argues for the importance
of this religiously orientated writing through the
adoption of a series of interdisciplinary approaches.

The Counter Reformation
in the Upper Palatinate
Trevor Johnson
St Andrews Studies in Reformation History
This book weaves together a narrative of events in the
South German principality of the Upper Palatinate with
an examination of the structural transformations within
the religious culture from the early seventeenth century
to the mid-eighteenth. Drawing both upon developments
in the historiography of early modern religion over the
last twenty years, and a wealth of documentary sources,
this study assesses the main conversion strategies utilized
over a one-hundred year period, which ultimately lead
to the re-catholicization of the Upper Palatinate.

Reforming the Scottish Parish
The Reformation in Fife, 15601640
John McCallum, Lancaster University, UK
St Andrews Studies in Reformation History
While the Protestant Reformation of 1560 is
acknowledged as being a watershed moment in Scottish
history, relatively little is known about the actual process
of establishing a reformed church in the parishes in the
following decades This book helps remedy the situation
by examining the foundation of the reformed church
and the impact of Protestant discipline in the parishes
of Fife. Based on a wealth of under-utilized sources,
the studys focus is on the grass-roots religious life of the
parish, rather than the more familiar themes of church
politics and theology. It evaluates the success of the
reformers in affecting both institutional and ideological
change, and provides a detailed account of the workings
of the reformed church, and its impact on ordinary people.

El Greco The Cretan Years
Nikolaos M. Panagiotakes, translated

This fundamental contribution to El Greco scholarship,

substantiated assessment of the evidence regarding the
formative years in the life of one of the greatest artists
of all time. Dealing with his birthplace, family, name,

Nikolaos Panagiotakes concludes that El Greco was
already an established professional master painter
by the time he left Crete for Italy in 1567 at the age
of twenty-six.

Essays in Naval History,
from Medieval to Modern
N.A.M. Rodger, University of Oxford, UK
Variorum Collected Studies Series: CS930
The articles collected here (two appearing for the rst
time in English) cover a number of topics central to
naval history and illustrate the authors contention that
this is not only, or even chiey, a distinct area of special
study, but rather a central theme running through the
history of England, and of the whole British Isles. Hence
many examine ways in which naval history has formed
a key element in such subjects as intellectual, religious,
administrative or medical history and explored the
nature and meaning of sea power as a theme. Others
are more technical in subject, and show how detailed
evidence about ships and weapons can build large
conclusions, for example about late Anglo-Saxon
government and military organization, or about
the nature of warfare at sea in the Renaissance era.

Conscience, Equity and the Court
of Chancery in Early Modern England
Dennis R. Klinck, McGill University, Canada
This study tackles the difcult yet crucial subject of the
place of conscience in the development of English law,
illuminating what is meant by describing the Court of
Chancery as a court of conscience. Addressing the
notion of conscience as a juristic principle in the
Court of Chancery during the sixteenth and seventeenth
centuries, the book explores how this was understood
in the early modern period. The study concludes with
an exploration of the chancellorship of Lord Nottingham
(167382), who is often regarded as the father of
modern equity through his efforts to transform equity
from a jurisdiction associated with discretion, into
one based on rules.

The Fiscal-Military State
in Eighteenth-Century Europe
Essays in Honour of P.G.M. Dickson
Edited by Christopher Storrs,
University of Dundee, UK
In recent decades, historians of early modern Europe,
and above all those who study the eighteenth century,
elaborated the concept of what has been called the
scal-military state. This volume of essays by leading
authorities, all of whom have published widely on their
chosen topic, explores the subject of the scal-military
state by focusing on its leading exemplars in eighteenth-
century Europe. In addition a further chapter considers
the scal-military state in a broader, comparative
international context, in the arena of international
relations. The differing patterns and the variety
of models of scal-military state makes for ease of
comparison across Europe. The volume will therefore
be invaluable to both students and researchers alike.

Handbook of World Exchange
Rates, 15901914
Markus A. Denzel, University of Leipzig, Germany
A clear, useful, authoritative explication of a set
of complex developments concerning international
exchange, the key to globalization of world trade and
nance. It is a magnicent achievement. This work will
easily and quickly become the standard source on the
subject of the evolving international payment system
over the last several centuries. It will be a must buy
for libraries around the world.
John J. McCusker, Trinity University
As a world economy emerged from the sixteenth
to seventeenth centuries onwards, a global cashless
payment system arose. This had its base in Europe, in
the rising regions of the north-west, with Amsterdam
and then London as the central nancial market. The
mutual quotation of exchange rates, which provide the
data tabulated and analyzed here, mark the integration
into a global network of all areas with signicant
economic potential.
The primary aim of this book is to provide a compact
account of the exchange rates in all these nancial
markets, from the late sixteenth century up to the First
World War. This makes possible an instant conversion
between the major world currencies at nearly any date
within that period. The present handbook therefore
serves as an invaluable resource for those concerned
with all aspects of commercial and nancial history.

on one group in one nation: the German humanists
biographical collections and individual biographies
of their humanist colleagues: pedagogues, scholars,
poets and reformers from 1480 to 1620. Two essays
also explore varied directions taken by pre-Reformation
humanists as they re-fashioned the lives of saints,
and by the earliest Lutheran reformers new strategies
along similar lines. The volume closes with a study
of Erasmus Ecclesiastes, a treatise on rhetoric,
in a sense an ideal biography, along with
a hand list of biographies discussed.

The Anatomist Anatomisd
An Experimental Discipline
in Enlightenment Europe
Andrew Cunningham, University of Cambridge, UK
The History of Medicine in Context
Within the history of medicine, the study of anatomy
has arguably received more attention than any other
medical discipline, yet, as this study argues, there is still
much about it that remains misunderstood or uncritically
accepted. By providing an overview of the discipline
during the long-eighteenth century, and focusing closely
on how contemporary practitioners dened anatomy
and thought it should be practiced, this book provides
a more systematic investigation into the subject. In so
doing it argues that upon closer inspection for anatomy
too there is a break around 1800, and that there is an
ancien regime anatomy, just as there was an ancient
regime political structure.
Contents: Introduction: the anatomist anatomisd; This

Religion, Moral Philosophy

Jeremy Schmidts book is a ne analysis of melancholy
as a species of madness in nearly the full gamut of its
early modern complexity
ISIS
While Jeremy Schmidt has written an impressive
historical study of melancholy, he is also persuasive
in suggesting in his conclusion that elements of the
early modern care of the soul deserve our attention
in terms of our own contemporary concerns over
the care of depression.

Early Modern History

Learning Medical Dispassion in Early Modern
England
Lynda Payne,
University of Missouri, Kansas City, USA
The History of Medicine in Context
In practice medical practitioners, especially physicians
and surgeons, have always had to learn some type
of detachment or dispassion. To elucidate what was
medical dispassion in seventeenth and eighteenth
century England, how and why it was taught, to whom,
and in what spaces, each chapter of this book examines
a community of practitioners and explores different
patterns of medical education, clinical practice, social
institutions, and philosophical and religious ideas.

Medicine and Religion in
Enlightenment Europe
Edited by Ole Peter Grell, The Open University,
UK and Andrew Cunningham, University of
Cambridge, UK
This volume explores the relationship between medicine
and religion during the Enlightenment Period, here
understood as covering the years 1650 to 1789. It looks
at this multi-faceted relationship with respect to among
others: medical care and death in hospitals, religious
vocation and nursing, chemical medicine and religion,
the clergy and medicine, the continued signicance of
popular medicine, faith healing, dissection and religion,
and religious dissent and medical innovation. Within
these signicant areas the volume provides a European
perspective which will make it possible to draw
comparisons and determine differences.

The History of Medicine in Context
Tim McHughs book offers a fresh and highly readable
treatment of an important subject McHughs careful
research, clear writing, and comparative ndings on an
important set of historical problems make his study a
solid contribution to the history of poor relief, the history
of French political development, and early modern
urban history.
Renaissance Quarterly
This book explores poor relief and charitable health
care in French cities during the seventeenth century, a
period that witnessed much reform and change in the
way these services were administered. By reintegrating
the social aspirations of urban elites into the history of
French poor relief, it shows how they initiated reform
in towns and cities when it suited them, but where
such reforms were not perceived as needed, or not
affordable, they ignored central government edicts to
build new institutions. In other words, reforms of poor
relief and health welfare were local and shaped by local
experiences, not as part of the crowns drive towards
centralization.

The Honourable Roger North,
16511734
On Life, Morality, Law and Tradition
Jamie C. Kassler,
Australian Academy of Humanities, Australia
Jamie Kassler is the leading authority on Roger North,
and over the years she has been responsible for careful
and illuminating editions of Norths writings. Her new
edition of Of Etimology continues this invaluable editing
work. It also provides a monograph-length essay
on Norths conception of the persona of the natural
philosopher and humanist, integrated into a thoughtful
treatment of his life. This essay provides what is now
the best starting point for readers coming to North
for the rst time.
Stephen Gaukroger, University of Sydney, Australia
Roger North (16511734) is known today as a
biographer and writer on music, architecture and estate
management. Yet his writings, including thousands of
pages still in manuscript, also contain critical reections
about intellectual and social changes taking place in
England. Eschewing the Whig stereotypes of North,
Jamie C. Kassler provides the rst interpretation of
his philosophy. She reveals that North, a common
lawyer by profession, combined the morality of the
sceptic, Montaigne, with the jurisprudence of the
common lawyers, Coke, Selden and Hale. This unusual
combination grounded Norths critical reections on the
dogmatism of natural-law doctrine, both in its medieval
intellectualist version and in its voluntarist reformulation
that began with Grotius and was developed by Hobbes,
Pufendorf and Locke.

Sonja Brentjes, University of Seville, Spain
Variorum Collected Studies Series: CS961
This collection of Sonja Brentjess articles deals with
travels, encounters and the exchange of knowledge in
the Mediterranean and Western Asia during the 16th
and 17th centuries, focusing on three historiographical
concerns. The rst is how we should understand the
relationship between Christian and Muslim societies,
in the period between the translations from Arabic into
Latin (10th - 13th centuries) and before the Napoleonic
invasion of Ottoman Egypt (1798). The second concern
is the Western discourse about the decline or
even disappearance of the sciences in late medieval
and early modern Islamic societies and, third, the
construction of Western Asian natures and cultures in
Catholic and Protestant books, maps and pictures. The
articles discuss institutional and personal relationships,
describe how Catholic or Protestant travellers learned
about and accessed Muslim scholarly literature, and
uncover contradictory modes of reporting, evaluating or
eradicating the visited cultures and their knowledge.

Marks of an Absolute Witch
Evidentiary Dilemmas
in Early Modern England
Orna Alyagon Darr, Haifa University, Israel
This work explores the social foundation of evidence
law in a specic historical social and cultural context
- the debate concerning the proof of the crime of
witchcraft in early modern England. In this period the
question of how to prove the crime of witchcraft was the
centre of a public debate and even those who strongly
believed in the reality of witchcraft had considerable
concerns regarding its proof. In a typical witchcraft
crime there were no eyewitnesses, and since torture
was not permitted in England, confessions could not
be easily obtained. The scarcity of evidence left the
fact-nders with a pressing dilemma. On the one hand,
using the standard evidentiary methods might have
jeopardized any chance of prosecuting and convicting
extremely dangerous criminals. On the other hand,
lowering the evidentiary standards might have led to the
conviction of innocent people.
Based on the analysis of 157 primary sources, the
book presents a picture of a diverse society whose
members tried to inuence evidentiary techniques in
order to achieve their distinct goals and bolster their
social standing. In so doing it further uncovers the
interplay between the struggle with the evidentiary
dilemma and social factors (such as class, position
along the centre/periphery axis and the professional
afliation of the participants) in the debate. In particular,
attention is focused on the professions of law, clergy
and medicine, and nd clear afnity between the
professional afliation and the evidentiary positions of
the participants in the debate, demonstrating how the
diverse social players and groups employed evidentiary
strategies as a resource, to realize their goals.

This collection explores different approaches to
contextualizing and conceptualizing the history of
Pietism, particularly German-speaking Pietistic groups
who migrated to the British colonies in North America
during the long eighteenth century. Emerging in the
seventeenth century, Pietism was closely related to
Puritanism, sharing similar evangelical and heterogeneous
characteristics. The importance of Pietism in shaping
Protestant society and culture in Europe and North
America has long been recognized, but as a topic
of scholarly inquiry, it has until now received little
interdisciplinary attention. Offering essays by leading
scholars from a range of elds this volume provides the
rst overview of the subject, helping to situate Pietism
in the broader Atlantic context, and making an important
contribution to understanding religious life in Europe and
colonial North America during the eighteenth century.

Political Economy and the States of
Literature in Early Modern England
Aaron Kitch, Bowdoin College, USA
Much of the historicist criticism of the past few decades
has ignored the shaping inuence that an emerging
discourse of trade exercised on the literature of early
modern England. Political Economy and the States of
Literature in Early Modern England seeks to address that
oversight by demonstrating that subjects like commerce
and credit are treated thoughtfully by a range of canonical
authors writing between 1570 and 1620, including
Spenser, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Middleton and Jonson.
Blair Hoxby, author of Mammons Music: Literature
and Economics in the Age of Milton
Crossing the disciplinary borders between political,
religious, and economic history, Aaron Kitchs

the reasons for a historical shift toward greater inclusion
of women in public culture(s) in early modern England
and Europe.
Jane Donawerth, University of Maryland
Offering a comparative and international approach to
early modern womens writing, the essays gathered here
focus on multiple literatures across Italy, France, England
and the Low Countries. Individual essays investigate
women in diverse social classes and life stages, ranging
from siblings and mothers to nuns to celebrated writers.

Figuring Modesty in Feminist
Discourse Across the Americas,

Tamara Harvey, George Mason University, USA
Women and Gender in the Early Modern World
Using the early modern denition of modesty as
keeping due measure, Tamara Harvey investigates, in
creative and novel ways, the involvement of four early
American women in the religious, philosophical and
medical debates of their day. Rather than be conned
by a symbolic body that viewed women as weak and
ineffectual, these women utilized a functional body
all aspects of which could be put to effective use
to act and write as full participants in public discourse,
expressing a feminist functionalism. Harveys innovative
approach proffers scholars with a new method to
interrogate corporeality within the literary and religious
works of early modern women.

The Cloister Disclosed
Barbara Woshinsky, University of Miami, USA
Women and Gender in the Early Modern World
In this book, Barbara Woshinky demonstrates her
intimate acquaintaince with the history of the convent
as habitat and as architectural construct, not only
through historical text, but also through personal site
visits to present-day covents. This is indeed a work
of maturity exhibiting knowledge of the eld of study
that is both broad and profound.
Roxanne Lalande, Lafayette College
Blending history, architecture and literary analysis,
this ground-breaking study explores the convents
place in the early modern imagination. After the
Council of Trent imposed strict claustral enclosure,
the nun became an intensied object of desire
in male-authored narratives. Convents also inspired
feminutopian discourses by women writers. Recent
criticism has identied spaces that women have made
their own: the ruelle, the salon, the hearth of fairy tales.
Woshinskys book denitively adds the convent to this list.

Witchcraft and Gender
in Early Modern Society
Finland and the Wider European Experience
Raisa Maria Toivo, University of Tampere, Finland
Women and Gender in the Early Modern World
In this unusual study, Raisa Toivo takes us into the little-
known world of Finnish peasant farmers in the seventeenth
centuryPushing against standard assumptions about
women and witchcraft, Toivo unsettles the idea that
witchcraft accusations were necessarily catastrophic
turning points in womens lives. On the basis of an
extraordinary trove of sources documenting the life
of a single substantial peasant woman, Toivo suggests
that witchcraft and magic could form just one thread
of a complex tapestry of life and survival, and that
our picture of womens roles, lives and risks has been
distorted by a fascination with the rare, sensational
moments documented in trials of witches.

Women Religious Leaders

Haruko Nawata Ward,
Columbia Theological Seminary, USA
Women and Gender in the Early Modern World
A monumental achievement! Haruko Ward has revealed
a century of forgotten lives and given voice and agency
to religious leaders who have been absent too long from
our histories. She has shown us, in all their variety and
complexity, the female leaders who transgressed and
transformed Japans religious culture. This is more than
a history of women or a history of religion. It is a book
that will change the way that we think about a crucial
and transitional age in the history of Japan.
D. Max Moerman, Columbia University
Meticulously researched and drawing on original source
materials written in eight different languages, this study
lls a lacuna in the historiography of Christianity in Japan.
Ward analyzes the experience of nuns, witches, catechists
and sisters in sixteenth-century Japan, bringing to light
how these women utilized resources from their traditional
religions to new Christian adaptations and specic religio-
social issues, creating unique hybrids of Catholicism
and Buddhism, or rejecting the new religion.

Womens Wealth and Womens
Writing in Early Modern England
Little Legacies and

Elizabeth Mazzola, City College
of the City University of New York, USA
Women and Gender in the Early Modern World
In this eloquent, evocative and valuable book, Elizabeth
Mazzola thoroughly ties womens writing into material
culture in a specic and detailed manner, providing a
needed focus on the material (needlework,writing, cloth,
poetry and letters) produced by four related women:
Queen Elizabeth, Bess Hardwick, Mary Stuart and Arbella
Stuart. She shows that their relationships are intricate
and complex, and traces the general evolution of the
relationship of women and goods/writings from rich
networks of afliation to empty commercial connections
as England moves towards a consumer economy.
Mary Ellen Lamb, Southern Illinois University
Focusing on both literary and material networks, this
book examines the nature of womens wealth in early
modern England, as well as the ways that womens
writing sought to manage and transmit this wealth. If
material goods like jewels and cloth could substantiate
powerful ties between mothers and daughters, Mazzola
argues that literary artifacts like diaries, prayers and
poetry similarly described and supported their ties.

Political Space
in Pre-industrial Europe
Edited by Beat Kmin, University of Warwick,
UK, with a preface by James C. Scott
This collection examines the potential and limitations
of spatial approaches for the political history of
preindustrial Europe. Adopting a broad denition
of political, the volume concentrates on two key
questions: Where did political exchange take place?
And how did spatial dimensions affect political life
in different periods and contexts? Taken together, the
essays demonstrate that premodern Europeans made use
of a much wider range of political spaces than is usually
assumed, and that spatial dimensions provided key
variables in political life. By bridging common gaps
between periods and disciplines, the volume offers
a timely and critical engagement with the spatial turn
and a review of the potential and limits of spatial
approaches for political history as a whole.

Printed Images

Essays in Interpretation
Edited by Michael Hunter, Birkbeck College,

Printed images were widely disseminated in early-
modern Britain, yet, by comparison with texts, they
have been relatively neglected, even by historians to
whom they ought to be of the greatest interest. This
volume helps remedy this state of affairs.
Complementing the online digital library of British
printed images to 1700, it offers a series of essays which
demonstrate the many and varied ways in which images
can better integrated into the history of the period.
Including contributions from many leading exponents of
the cultural history of early-modern Britain, it repeatedly
underlines how every facet of British culture in the
period can be better understood with an appreciation of

Religion, Politics
and Dissent, 16601832
Essays in Honour of James E. Bradley
Edited by Robert D. Cornwall and William Gibson,
Oxford Brookes University, UK
The idea of the long eighteenth century (16601832)
as a period in which religious and political dissent
was regarded as antecedents of the Enlightenment
has recently been advanced by several scholars.
The purpose of this collection is further to explore
these connections between religious and political
dissent in Enlightenment Britain. Addressing the many
and rich connections between political and religious
dissent in the long eighteenth century, the volume also
acknowledges the work of Professor James E. Bradley
in stimulating interest in these issues among scholars.
By bringing together historians of politics, religion,
ideas and society to engage with the central theme of
the volume, the collection provides a forum for leading
scholars to engage with a signicant theme in British
history in the long eighteenth century.

contribution that sheds new light on a signicant yet

Sarah Schroth, Duke University
Introducing fresh archival evidence, author Lisa Banner
here demonstrates how Francisco Gmez de Sandoval
y Rojas, rst Duke of Lerma, served as a vital link
in Habsburg architectural patronage. She traces how
Lerma embarked on a career of renovating or building
religious foundations in seventeenth-century Spain; and
shows how his architectural patronage and involvement
connected the foundations of Lerma indelibly with the
traditions of noble patronage in Habsburg Spain.

Rich Apparel
Clothing and the Law in Henry VIIIs England
Maria Hayward, University of Southampton, UK
English dress in the second half of the sixteenth century
has been studied in depth, yet remarkably little has been
written on the earlier years, or indeed on male clothing
for the whole century. The few studies that do cover these
neglected areas have tended to be quite general, focusing
upon garments rather than the wearers. As such this
present volume lls an important gap by providing a
detailed analysis of not only what people wore in Henrys
reign, but why. By combining considerations of primary
sources with modern scholarly analysis, this book
is invaluable for anyone with an interest in the history
of fashion, clothing and consumption in Tudor society.

Ritual, Ceremony and the Changing
Monarchy in France, 13501789
Lawrence M. Bryant,
California State University, Chico, USA
Variorum Collected Studies Series: CS937
This collection of articles explores changes in images
of the French monarchy propagated in ceremonies that
townspeople and ofcials created for their kings. Bryant
looks at royal entres as massive processional and
street theaters in which members of the kingdom both
discoursed with and exalted the king in a multiplicity
of ritual forms, symbolism and public art. These
ceremonies personalized the idea of the state as
embodied in the king, and they publicized rights
and authority, new historical or mythological themes,
innovative styles of monumental architecture and
art, and theories of ideal and shared government.
Contents: Introduction: from ephemeral to perdurable
rituals and ceremonies; Parlementaire political theory
in the Parisian royal entry ceremony; The medieval entry
ceremony at Paris; Congurations of the community in
late medieval spectacles: Paris and London during the
dual monarchy; What face to put on?: extravagance
and royal authority in Louis XIs ceremonies; Politics,
ceremonies, and the embodiments of majesty in Henry
IIs France; Making history: ceremonial texts, royal
space, and political theory in the 16th century;
Graphic history: what readers knew and were taught
in the Quarante Tableaux of Perrissin and Tortorel;
From communal ritual to royal spectacle: some
observations on the staging of royal entries (1450
1600); Royal ceremony and the revolutionary

By 1651 Susanna Hopton was collaborating with her
future husband Richard Hopton in his activities as a
royalist agent and around the same time she was converted
to Roman Catholicism by Henry Turberville, a secular
priest and distinguished controversialist. After her marriage
she was persuaded to rejoin the Church of England after
long and serious search and deliberation. Her
engagement with Roman Catholicism remained the
dening event in her spiritual development and had
a powerful inuence on her writing, much of which
consists of the adaptation of Roman Catholic devotional
sources for Anglican use. Her rst printed work, Daily
Devotions, set the pattern for all her subsequent
publications which were published anonymously
through the mediation of male, clerical friends.

Jane Barker (16521732) is increasingly being
recognized as one of the most important English women
writers of the late-seventeenth and early-eighteenth
centuries. The author of both poems and novels
(including novels containing numerous poems), Barker
was largely ignored for many years but has recently
been the subject of intense interest and investigation.
Despite this, no complete, collected edition of Barkers
poems has yet appeared, and the present volume is
the rst reproduction of her important early published
volume, Poetical Recreations, to be issued in facsimile
as a printed book (rather than on microlm).

Katherine Chidley was a religious and political activist

the parliamentarian cause against the royalists during
the English civil wars of the 1640s; and sided with
the proto-democratic Levellers against the more
authoritarian regime of Oliver Cromwell. Between
1641 and 1645, Chidley published three works

and promoting the far-reaching principle of the
separation of church and state. These are reprinted

Jonathan Spangler, Manchester

The Society of Princes gives dynastic history a new
lease on life. It demonstrates that individuals in the various
constituent lineages of one dynasty of princes trangers
continued through the seventeenth century to look
beyond the interests of their immediate families to those
of their broad, transnational kinship group as a whole.
Carolyn Lougee Chappell, Stanford University
The princes trangers were an inuential group of
courtiers in early modern France, none more so than
the princes from the Lorraine-Guise family. This book
examines the Lorraine-Guise at the court of Louis XIV
and their renewed power, wealth and inuence after
the turbulent Wars of Religion. It is a substantial
contribution to scholarship in court studies and will
add greatly to debates on the nature of crown-noble
relations in the era of absolutism.

This volume focuses on early modern paintings,
sculpture and other artworks in which subjects have
been difcult to dene, which constitute potentially

as case studies, contributors analyze borderline

due to the convergence of discordant elements

Trade and Industry
in Early Modern Italy
Domenico Sella,
University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA
Variorum Collected Studies Series: CS932
This volume brings together a set of classic essays by
Domenico Sella in which he reassesses the economic
fortunes of Northern Italy, in particular Lombardy and
Venice, during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
The essays in this volume represent as many soundings
into this long forgotten rural world. As it turns out,
rural communities often harbored handicraft industries,
and the latter appear to have avoided the debacle
that hit the urban economies and their celebrated
manufactures, highly regulated as they were by
the guilds, in the face of international competition.

War, the State
and International Law in
Seventeenth-Century Europe
Edited by Olaf Asbach, University of Hamburg,
Germany and Peter Schrder,
University College London, UK
Exploring the history and theories of political thought
of international relations in the seventeenth century,
this volume addresses one of the great paradoxes
of post-medieval Europe: why instead of bringing
peace to a disorganized and violent world, modernity
instead produced a seemingly endless string
of conicts and social upheavals? Bringing together
political scientists, philosophers, historians of political
thought, jurists and scholars of international relations,
the collection offers a sophisticated and fresh account
of the interactions of law, conict and the nation state
in an early-modern European context.

international law in 17th century Europe, Olaf Asbach

Europa Triumphans
Court and Civic Festivals
in Early Modern Europe
Edited by J.R. Mulryne and Margaret Shewring,
both at University of Warwick, UK and
Helen Watanabe OKelly, University of Oxford, UK
immense in scope, and the quality of its scholarship
very high indeedthis highly useful publication is likely
to give new impetus to the eld of festival studies.
Renaissance Quarterly
A landmark in the study of early modern Europe, this
collection makes available for the rst time a selection
of the most important texts from court and civic festival
books. Festival entertainments were presented to mark
such occasions as royal and ducal entries to capital
cities, dynastic marriages, the birth and christening
of heirs, religious feasts and royal and ducal funerals.
Europa Triumphans represents the chronological
and trans-European range of the court and civic
festival. These festivals are considered not simply
as texts, but as events, and are introduced by groups
of scholars, each with a specialist knowledge of the
political, social and cultural signicance of the festival
and of the iconography, spectacle, music, dance,
voice and gesture in which they were expressed.
To demonstrate the geographic spread and political
signicance of festivals, and to illustrate the range of
aesthetic languages they deploy, the festivals included
in these two volumes are grouped in the following
sections: Henri III; Genoa; Poland-Lithuania; The
Netherlands; The Protestant Union; La Rochelle;
Scandinavia; and The New World. These texts provide
many valuable insights into the variety of political
systems and historical circumstances that formed them.
Beautifully produced with 148 black-and-white and
23 colour illustrations, Europa Triumphans represents
an invaluable reference source for the study of early
modern Europe. It presents texts both in transcription
and translated into English, and is supplemented
with introductory essays and commentaries.

The Diary of Edmund Harrold,
Wigmaker of Manchester 171215
Edited by Craig Horner,
Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
This volume presents a fully-referenced modern edition
of the diary of the Manchester barber Edmund Harrold,
covering the period 17121715. It is remarkable for
its insights into his life and thoughts, laying open his
struggles with alcohol, his attitudes to (and frequency
of) marital sex, his reactions to the death of his three
wives and 5 children, and his religious meditations
upon these and other subjects. The diary also relates
the ups and downs of his business, and the day-to-day
realities of life as a provincial barber. More than this
though, it is a frank, and often anguished, insight into
the mind of an eighteenth century man, seeking to
come to terms with himself, his god and a changing
society.
Contents: Introduction; Editorial method; Sample pages
of the diary; The Diary of Edmund Harrold, Wigmaker of

Francis Willughbys Book of Games
A Seventeenth-Century Treatise on Sports,
Games and Pastimes
Edited by David Cram, University of Oxford, UK,
Jeffrey L. Forgeng, Worcester Polytechnic Institute,
USA and Dorothy Johnston, University
of Nottingham, UK
Francis Willughbys Book of Games, published
here for the rst time, is a remarkable work and an
invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in
early modern social history. Dating from the 1660s,
the manuscript lists a wide variety of sports, games
and pastimes, including football, hurling, card games,
tennis and childrens games. As well as providing rules
and a description of the various games (often with
accompanying sketches to explain particular points)
there are numerous fascinating snippets of related
information (such as the care of ghting cocks), that
bring the subject to life, whilst the section on childrens
games is particularly poignant. Providing not only a
word-for word transcription of the Book of Games, this
present volume also contains a host of interpretative
material to complement the original data.

Sir Walter Raleghs Discoverie
of Guiana
Edited by Joyce Lorimer,
Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada
Hakluyt Society, Third Series: 15
Sir Walter Raleghs account of his 1595 expedition
in search of the fabled empire of El Dorado was an
immediate publishing success and is one of the most
important pieces of Elizabethan travel literature. This
edition presents the annotated texts of an unpublished
copy of Raleghs draft of The Discoverie of the
Large, Rich, and Bewtifvl Empyre of Gviana and the
subsequent printed versions. It demonstrates how the
manuscript was altered for publication, to focus its
appeal to investors in gold mines for which Ralegh had
very little evidence.
Contents: Preface; Introduction: The physical description
of the manuscript; The relationship of the manuscript to
the text; Cecils response to Raleghs proposals; Of the
Voyage for Guiana; The Queens response to Raleghs
proposals; Revising for print; The empire of Guiana; The
background to the Spanish searches for El Dorado; Gold

160718, describing the gold mine allegedly discovered
by Ralegh in 1595; Dutch and English explorations

Portuguese Encounters with Sri
Lanka and the Maldives
Translated Texts from the Age of the
Discoveries
Edited by Chandra R. de Silva, Old Dominion
University, USA
Portuguese Encounters with Sri Lanka and the Maldives:
Translated Texts from the Age of the Discoveries is
designed to provide access to translations of 16th- and
17th-century documents which illustrate various aspects
of this encounter, combining texts from indigenous
sources with those from the Portuguese histories and
archives. These documents contribute to the growing
understanding that different groups of European
colonizers - missionaries, traders and soldiers - had
conicting motivations and objectives. Scholars have
also begun to emphasize that the colonized were not
mere victims but had their own agendas and that they
occasionally successfully manipulated colonial powers.
The texts in this volume help to substantiate these
assertions while also illustrating the changing nature of
the interactions.
