Overview

Throughout the sixteenth century, political and intellectual developments in Britain and The Netherlands were closely intertwined. At different times religious refugees from one or other country found a secure haven across the Channel, and a constant interchange of books, ideas and personnel underscored the affinity of lands which both made a painful progress towards Protestantism during the course of the century. This collection of ten new studies, all by specialists active in the field, explores the full ramifications of these links, from the first intellectual contacts inspired by the growth of Humanism to the planting of established Protestant churches. With contributions from specialists in art history, literary studies and history, the volume also underscores the vitality of new research in this field and points the way to several new departures in the field of Reformation and Renaissance studies.

Booknews
Historians, especially of the church and art, and scholars of literature and religion examine links between the political and intellectual developments in the two countries during the 16th century, from the first contacts inspired by the growth of Humanism to the planting of established protestant churches. Their topics include the piety of Henry VIII, the exile literature of the early Reformation, religious propaganda in Netherlandish prints and drawings, the Campbells and the Scottish Reformation, and the intellectual and cultural context of the Reformation in the northern Netherlands. No location is noted for the conference. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
