This book explores key aspects of Richard Hooker's philosophical and theological discourse in the context of currents of thought prevalent in the Magisterial Reformation of the sixteenth century. Hooker's treatment of natural law, his dependence upon the philosophical discourse and traditional cosmology of Christian Neoplatonism, and his appeal to the authority of patristic sources, are all closely examined. Challenging the received 'exceptionalist' model of much of the twentieth-century interpretation of Hooker, in particular the concept of his supposed defence of the English Reformation as s

Richard Hooker and the English Reformation by W. J. Torrance Kirby( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of seventeen essays addresses the substance of Richard Hooker's achievement as a theologian and philosopher in the context of principal themes of English Reformation thought. Hooker has been variously described as a Protestant scholastic Renaissance Aristotelian, Erasmian humanist, Thomist, moderate Calvinist and founder of a distinctive new theological method. The main thrust of these essays is to weigh such protean claims against careful readings of his oeuvre. Five principal loci of Reformation discourse are addressed: 1) the relation between the "orders" of Grace and Nature; 2) the doctrines of Providence and Predestination; 3) the Church and the liturgy; 4) sacramental theology; and 5) the polemical cut-and-thrust of the late-Elizabethan context. Scholars, seminarians and students alike will find that this volume offers a fresh, critical illumination of Hooker's distinctive contribution to sixteenth-century religious reform."--Jacket

Persuasion and conversion : essays on religion, politics, and the public sphere in early modern England by W. J. Torrance Kirby( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early modern 'public sphere' emerges out of a popular 'culture of persuasion' fostered by the Protestant Reformation. By 1600, religious identity could no longer be assumed as 'given' within the hierarchical institutions and elaborate apparatus of late-medieval 'sacramental culture'. Reformers insisted on a sharp demarcation between the inner, subjective space of the individual and the external, public space of institutional life. Gradual displacement of sacramental culture was achieved by means of argument, textual interpretation, exhortation, reasoned opinion, and moral advice exercised through both pulpit and press. This alternative culture of persuasion presupposes a radically distinct notion of mediation. The common focus of the essays collected here is the dynamic interaction of religion and politics which provided a crucible for the emerging modern 'public sphere'

Mediating religious cultures in early modern Europe by Matthew Milner( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, writing on early-modern culture has turned from examining the upheavals of the Reformation as the ruptured birth of early modernity out of the late medieval towards a striking emphasis on processes of continuity, transition, and adaptation. No longer is the 'religious' seen as institutional or doctrinaire, but rather as a cultural and social phenomenon that exceeds the rigid parameters of modern definition. Recent analyses of early-modern cultures offer nuanced accounts that
