Charitable hatred

Tolerance and intolerance in England, 1500-1700

Alexandra Walsham

Published by Manchester University Press

Politics Culture and Society in Early Modern Britain MUP

  • New in Paperback
  • Offers a thematic overview of sixteenth and seventeenth-century religious history, focusing on the history of religious dissent and its treatment
  • Weaves together different approaches to the topic and forges an original link between them: intellectual, legal, political, ecclesiastical, social and cultural
  • Treats dissenting groups comparatively rather than separately
  • Avoids linear models of progress 'from persecution to toleration' which have hitherto dominated the historiography
