Religious controversy was central to political conflict in the
years before the English Civil War. Where earlier historians have
focused more narrowly on the doctrine of predestination, Dr Milton
analyses the broader attitudes which underlay notions of religious
orthodoxy. Through the first comprehensive analysis of how
contemporaries viewed the Roman and foreign Reformed churches in
the early Stuart period, Milton demonstrates the way in which an
author's choice of a particular style of religious discourse could
be used either to mediate or to provoke religious conflict. This
study challenges many current historical orthodoxies. It identifies
the theological novelty of Laudianism, but also exposes areas of
ideological tension within the Jacobean Church. Its wide-ranging
conclusions will be of vital concern to students of early Stuart
religion and the origins of the English Civil War.
