Calvinism and the arts : a re-assessment by Christopher Richard Joby( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is often thought that the French Reformer John Calvin (1509-1564) had a negative attitutde towards the arts, particularly visual art. However, in Calvinism and the Arts: A Re-assessment, Dr. Joby argues that in Calvin's writings and in the development of the Reformed tradition more generally, it is possible to discern a more positive attitude than has hitherto been recognized. He makes a start by examining exactly what type of visual art Calvin rejeced and what type he affirmed. He goes on to consider how Calvin's epistemology and eschatology can be used to argue for the placing of certain types of art, notably histories and landscape paintings, within Reformed churches and then devotes separate chapters to reflecting on how music, architecture and church decoration within the Reformed tradition provide futher arguments for the use of these works of art. In the final section, he looks at specific histories and landscapes from the Dutch Golden Age and considers how the form and content of both of these types of art provide us with further ontological and epistemological arguments which inevitably lead to the concludion that their continued exclusion from Reformed churches is no longer tenable". -- Book jacket
The multilingualism of Constantijn Huygens (1596-1687) by Christopher Richard Joby( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dutch, French, Latin, Greek, Italian, English, Spanish, and German: those are the eight languages that Dutch Golden Age poet Constantijn Huygens (1596-1687) used to write his poetry and correspondence. He also knew a bit of Hebrew and Portuguese. Examining a wide range of Huygens's writings-including personal letters, state correspondence, and poetry-Christopher Joby explores how Huygens tested the boundaries of language with his virtuosity as a polyglot. From Huygens's multilingual code switching to his writings on architecture, music, and natural science, this comprehensive account is a must-read for anyone interested in this Dutch statesman and man of letters
The Dutch language in Britain (1550-1702) : a social history of the use of Dutch in early modern Britain by Christopher Richard Joby( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Joby offers an account of the knowledge and use of Dutch in early modern Britain. Using extensive archive material from Britain and the Low Countries, Chris Joby demonstrates that Dutch was both written and spoken in a range of social domains including the church, work, learning, the home, diplomacy, the military and navy, and the court. Those who used the language included artisans and their families fleeing religious and economic turmoil on the continent; the Anglo-Dutch King, William III; and Englishmen such as the scientist, Robert Hooke. Joby's account adds both to our knowledge of the use of Dutch in the early modern period and multilingualism in Britain at this time
