By Mark A. Kishlansky

The tragedy of Charles I dominates probably the most unusual and painful sessions in British background because the complete island tore itself aside over a perilous, entangled sequence of non secular and political disputes. In Mark Kishlansky's remarkable account it's by no means doubtful that Charles created his personal disaster, yet he was once still hostile by means of males with a long way fewer scruples and no more consistency who for occasionally particularly contradictory purposes conspired to ruin him. this can be a amazing portrait of 1 of the main gifted, considerate, unswerving, ethical, artistically alert and but, in some way, disastrous of all this country's rulers.

Example text

Marshall, The Catholic Priesthood and the English Reformation (Oxford, 1994), p. 102. 70 The study of the early Reformation, in England and elsewhere, has undoubtedly suffered from an anachronistic obsession with the ‘origins’ of later confessional movements, and an insufficient interest in or understanding of the extent to which early evangelicals were shaped within, and emerged from, the complex religious culture of their own age. Nonetheless, in investigating the experience of evangelical conversion in the quarter-century following Luther’s break with the papacy it would be strange to suggest that we are not somewhere near the source of what would later be called Protestantism.

157 ff. James interpreted conversion in psychoanalytical terms as the process ‘by which a self hitherto divided, and consciously wrong, inferior and unhappy, becomes unified and consciously right, superior and happy, in consequence of its firmer hold upon religious realities’.
