CELEBRATING A CULTURAL TURN: POLITICAL CULTURE AND CULTURAL POLITICS IN EARLY MODERN ENGLAND KEVIN SHARPE University of Southampton The historiography of seventeenth-century England has produced some of the finest, and most important, historical scholarship of any period or country. Be it political, religious, or social history, works on the gentry controversy, the Civil War, religion and magic, or the crisis of the aristocracy have deservedly been read by scholars of other periods and disciplines and have influenced the approaches to other centuries and subjects. Over the last twenty years the controversies over revi- sionism and the English Civil War have reverberated into the histori- ography of other revolutions and have excited large discussions about the nature of historical evidence and narrative, and about the histo- rian's own reading and positioning. Most recently the beginnings of a cultural turn in early modern studies-an openness to the theoretical and critical perspectives of other disciplines, principally literary studies- have led to a relaxing of the borders between political, social, and cul- tural history, and to a reconstruction of political history itself.' I Professor David Underdown, an English scholar who migrated to America, has been at the pinnacle of early modern studies
