The age of Elizabeth I continues to exercise a fascination
unmatched by other periods of English history. Yet while the
leading figures may seem familiar, many Elizabethan figures,
including the queen herself, remain enigmatic. In Elizabethans
Patrick Collinson examines the religious beliefs both of Elizabeth
and of Shakespeare, as well as redrawing the main features of the
political and religious structure of the reign. He understands the
characters of the period, whether John Foxe the martyrologist or
Andrew Perne, the notorious Cambridge turncoat, as individuals and
is also sensitive to the attitudes and beliefs of the day. Social
history is not history with the politics left out, nor can
religious history be written without an understanding of its
political and social context. This is the approach that Patrick
Collinson advocates and practises in Elizabethans.
