9780199204816: The Evolving Reputation of Richard Hooker: An Examination of Responses, 1600-1714

Richard Hooker has long been viewed as one of England's great theological and political writers. When he died, however, at the end of the sixteenth century, his writings had proved to be something of a damp squib. This book examines, against the background of the political and religious crises of the seventeenth century, how he came to rise from comparative obscurity to be regarded as a universal authority. It will be seen how an unintended alliance of Reformed Protestants, suspicious of Hooker, and Catholics, anxious to exploit his perceived sympathies, led to his establishment as a distinctive, well-regarded English writer. Whilst the boundaries of Hooker's comprehensiveness have expanded and contracted in response to particular situations, the belief that he is an important writer has remained remarkably constant ever since.

About the Author:


Michael Brydon is Assistant Curate of St Peter's, Bexhill-on-Sea.

Review:


"Brydon's book is a fascinating and thoroughly researched treatment of the manifold uses of Hooker.... The reader has to look hard to find fault with this book; on the whole, it tellingly illuminates the story of English religion in the seventeenth century simply by tracing what has being and about the judicious Hooker."--Dewey D. Wallace Jr., The Historian

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2007. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Richard Hooker has long been viewed as one of England s great theological and political writers. When he died, however, at the end of the sixteenth century, his writings had proved to be something of a damp squib. This book examines, against the background of the political and religious crises of the seventeenth century, how he came to rise from comparative obscurity to be regarded as a universal authority. It will be seen how an unintended alliance of Reformed Protestants, suspicious of Hooker, and Catholics, anxious to exploit his perceived sympathies, led to his establishment as a distinctive, well-regarded English writer. Whilst the boundaries of Hooker s comprehensiveness have expanded and contracted in response to particular situations, the belief that he is an important writer has remained remarkably constant ever since.
