English polemics at the Spanish court : Joseph Creswell's Letter to the ambassador from England, the English and Spanish texts of 1606 by Joseph Cresswell( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1606 when the Spanish court learned about the recent Draconian laws against the Catholics in England in the aftermath of the notorious Gunpowder Plot, Joseph Creswell, a well-known Jesuit living in Madrid, wrote a public letter to Sir Charles Cornwallis, the ambassador of James I. His carefully reasoned tract argued that violence against the religious consciences of Englishmen and women had no justification in light of the peace treaty signed by Catholic Spain and Protestant England. To rally support among influential leaders in the court and capital of the Spanish king, he printed a Castillian translation of the "letter" for simultaneous circulation. Readers have, for the first time, an annotated edition of both Creswell's English text, based on the original copy presented to the ambassador (now located at the British Library), and his contemporary Castillian version from the unique copy in the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid. In this book, historians, political philosophers, and scholars of Jacobean prose and polemics will find a new author added to the library of English recusant literature of the early seventeenth century. Joseph Creswell drew upon his considerable personal knowledge to write the earliest printed contemporary comments about the events in the aftermath of the Gunpowder Plot. Hereto known only as a close associate of more famous writers of the Counter-Reformation, Joseph Creswell can now be seen as an original and lively polemicist seizing an opportunity to address both an English and a Spanish audience
