Patronage, literature and religion

Hugh Adlington, Tom Lockwood, and Gillian Wright

Published by Manchester University Press

Politics Culture and Society in Early Modern Britain MUP

  • Studies a key historical figure - the English chaplain - whose contribution to early modern culture has previously been ignored or undervalued
  • Breaks new ground in exploring chaplains' roles within church history, governmental structures, the domestic household, and the institutions of literary production
  • The only book of its kind currently available in the field, containing both detailed overviews of its subject and richly documented case studies; this is an essential work of reference
  • A pioneering collaboration between leading historians and literary scholars: all of the essays are freshly commissioned pieces of writing, based on extensive archival research
