Religious Politics in Post-Reformation England: Essays in Honour of Nicholas Tyacke

Religious Politics in Post-Reformation England: Essays in Honour of Nicholas Tyacke © Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, 2007 JEMH 11,6 Also available online – www.brill.nl/jemh Fincham, Kenneth and Peter Lake (eds.), Religious Politics in Post- Reformation England: Essays in Honour of Nicholas Tyacke (Woodbridge: The Boydell Press, 2006), xiv + 252 pp., £50.00/$85.00, ISBN 1 843 83253 4. This essay collection pays tribute to Nicholas Tyacke, a scholar whose work has long been associated with the revisionist school of seventeenth- century English history. The revisionist agenda with regard to early modern religious history was to elevate the importance of the Arminians at the expense of the Puritans. That aspect of revisionism ran aground long ago; for evidence one need look no further than the volume under review, where only one essay deals with the Arminians or Laudians while fi ve essays focus on the hotter sort of protestants. Yet it is ques- tionable whether the elevation of one group at the expense of the other was ever Tyacke’s aim. He wrote frequently on both subjects, although he is best known for drawing attention to the importance of Arminianism in an Oxford thesis in 1968, in a seminal article in 1973, and in his book Anti-Calvinists , published in 1987.
