This volume traces the evolution of Whig and Tory, Puritan and Anglican ideas across a tumultuous period of British history, from the mid-seventeenth century through to the Age of Enlightenment.
This volume, a tribute to Mark Goldie, traces the evolution of Whig and Tory, Puritan and Anglican ideas across a tumultuous period of British history, from the mid-seventeenth century through to the Age of Enlightenment. Mark Goldie, Fellow of Churchill College and Professor of Intellectual History at Cambridge University, is one of the most distinguished historians of later Stuart Britain of his generation and has written extensively about politics, religion and ideas in Britain from the Restoration through to the Hanoverian succession. Based on original research, the chapters collected here reflect the range of his scholarly interests: in Locke, Tory and Whig political thought,and Puritan, Anglican and Catholic political engagement, as well as the transformative impact of the Glorious Revolution. They examine events as well as ideas and deal not only with England but also with Scotland, France and the Atlantic world. Politics, Religion and Ideas in Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Britain will be of interest to later Stuart political and religious historians, Locke scholars and intellectual historians more generally.

JUSTIN CHAMPION is Professor of History at Royal Holloway, University of London.

JOHN COFFEY is Professor of Early Modern History at the University of Leicester.

TIM HARRIS is Professor of History at Brown University.

JOHN MARSHALL is Professor of History at John Hopkins University.

Mark Goldie Bibliography
"An important collection of essays and will becomeessential reading for all scholars of the seventeenth and eighteenthcentury." SCOTTISH CHURCH HISTORY
"An excellent collection...These are well-written and well-researched essays, which together provide an excellent overview of recent scholarship on British political and religious ideas in the age which Goldie made his own." JOURNAL OF BRITISH STUDIES
"Does justice to Goldie as a historian of ideas, politics and religion, and as a scholar of Locke and his setting, of England as well as Scotland...Since most of the contributors write and think in the spirit of Goldie-or at least in interlocution with his work-this is an unusually even and coherent Festschrift." SCOTTISH HISTORICAL REVIEW
"The pieces are all of high quality, casting vivid light on details of Restoration and 18th-century culture...These essays are all excellent." REVIEWS IN HISTORY
