Henry Vaughan's Silex Scintillans

Scripture Uses

Philip West

  • An illuminating study of Vaughan's use of biblical sources and of the wider context of how the Bible was interpreted in the mid-seventeenth century.
  • A significant contribution to our historical understanding of the Commonwealth period, especially from the less well known Royalist viewpoint.
  • Adds to our knowledge of how the Bible was percieved and used, in literature, politics, and culture.
