Catholicity and the Covenant of Works

James Ussher and the Reformed Tradition

Harrison Perkins

Oxford Studies in Historical Theology

  • Explores the covenant of works - a topic of increasing interest within the study of early modern religion - in more depth than any previous monograph
  • Draws on rare and previously uncited manuscript evidence that sheds light on what James Ussher taught during a contentious period of Irish and British history
  • Offers a look at the nature of puritanism and conformity in the established churches of Ireland and England in the seventeenth century
