Synopsis: This book examines the relationship between literature and religious conflict in seventeenth-century England, showing how literary texts grew out of and addressed the contemporary controversy over ceremonial worship. Examining the meaning and function of religion in seventeenth-century England, Achsah Guibbory shows that the conflicts over religious ceremony that were central to the English Revolution had broad cultural significance. She offers new and original readings of Herbert, Herrick, Browne and Milton in this context.

Review: "In this well-written and informative book, the author brings together cultural history, the history of religion, and formalist literary analysis to show how imaginative literature functioned in this conflict. A good choice for graduate and research collections supporting studies of 17th-century religious literature." Choice

"...Guibbory is able to enter sympathetically into these several spiritualities while maintaining an appropriate critical perspective and an unostentatious professionalism." R.D. Stock, Christianity & Literature

"Achsah Guibbory's focused and cogently argued Ceremony and Community from Herbert to Milton: Literature, Religion and Cultural Conflict in Seventeenth-Century England serves to remind us of the function of first-rate criticism to provide us with that fresh perspective which enlivens and re-invigorates our approach to often-read works." Seventeenth-Century News

"This learned and imaginative book should prove of major interest to all students of Stuart England and the Interregnum. Its originality, and much of its importance, derive from its fusion of literary and historical evidence; its sensible reassessment of recent scholarship on the bearing of conflicting ideas of ceremonial worship on concepts of religious, cultural, and social community; and its fresh readings and reinterpretations of four major authors of mid-century England." John M. Steadman, Albion

"...a book that is a comprehensively researched, impeccably organized, clearly written, and persuasively argued analysis of some of the key conflicts that energized seventeenth-century England....wonderfully successful. Ceremony and Community from Herbert to Milton provocatively reimmerses seventeenth-century literature in its broader ideological context and persuasively shows that the properly informed reader of Herbert, Browne, Herrick, and Milton must always be alert to the complex and inextricably mixed mode of their works: as aesthetic artifacts, devotional meditations, and philosophical and political polemics." Sidney Gottlieb, George Herbert Journal

"This valuable book focuses on the implications for literary culture of one of the most divisive issues in seventeenth-century England, the role of ceremony and ritual in religious worship. Written in a clear, engaging style, Ceremony and Community makes an important contribution to our understanding of literary and religious culture in seventeenth-century England. The book's sympathetic account of the ceremonialist mentality is especially appealling. The book's treatment of puritan ideology, if less satisfying, is at any rate certain to provoke further discussion." Kevin J. Donovan, Ben Jonson Journal
