This fourth edition has been fully updated and each chapter now begins with an introductory overview of the topic being discussed, in which important and current historical debates are highlighted. Other new features of the book include a closer examination of the image and style of leadership that different monarchs projected during their reigns; greater coverage of Phillip II and Mary I as joint monarchs; new sections exploring witchcraft during the period and the urban sector in the Stuart age; and increased discussion of the English Civil War, of Oliver Cromwell and of Cromwellian rule during the 1650s. Also containing an entirely rewritten guide to further reading and enhanced by a wide selection of maps and illustrations, Tudor and Stuart Britain is an excellent resource for both students and teachers of this period.

The Royal Doctors, 1485-1714

Medical Personnel at the Tudor and Stuart Courts

Drawing upon a myriad of primary and secondary historical sources, The Royal Doctors: Medical Personnel at the Tudor and Stuart Courts investigates the influential individuals who attended England's most important patients during a pivotal epoch in the evolution of the state and the medical profession. Over three hundred men (and a handful of women), heretofore unexamined as a group, made up the medical staff of the Tudor and Stuart kings and queens of England (as well as the Lord Protectorships of Oliver and Richard Cromwell). The royal doctors faced enormous challenges in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries from diseases that respected no rank and threatened the very security of the realm. Moreover, they had to weather political and religious upheavals that led to regicide and revolution, as well as cope with sharp theoretical and jurisdictional divisions within English medicine. The rulers often interceded in medical controversies at the behest of their royal doctors, bringing sovereign authority to bear on the condition of medicine. Elizabeth Lane Furdell is Professor of History at the University of North Florida.

Birth, Marriage, and Death : Ritual, Religion, and the Life-Cycle in Tudor and Stuart England

Ritual, Religion, and the Life-Cycle in Tudor and Stuart England

From childbirth and baptism through to courtship, weddings, and funerals, every stage in the life-cycle of Tudor and Stuart England was accompanied by ritual. Even under the protestantism of the reformed Church, the spiritual and social dramas of birth, marriage, and death were graced with elaborate ceremony. Powerful and controversial protocols were in operation, shaped and altered by the influences of the Reformation, the Revolution, and the Restoration. Each of the major rituals was potentially an arena for argument, ambiguity, and dissent. Ideally, as classic rites of passage, these ceremonies worked to bring people together. But they also set up traps into which people could stumble, and tests which not everybody could pass. In practice, ritual performance revealed frictions and fractures that everyday local discourse attempted to hide or to heal. Using fascinating first-hand evidence, David Cressy shows how the making and remaking of ritual formed part of a continuing debate, sometimes strained and occasionally acrimonious, which exposed the raw nerves of society in the midst of great historical events. In doing so, he vividly brings to life the common experiences of living and dying in Tudor and Stuart England.

Die Aussichten sind nicht rosig: Sir Robert Merivel, Medicus, Lebemann und Vertrauter Charles’ II., hat bessere Zeiten gesehen. War er nicht der Mann, der den König von England zum Lachen brachte? Soll er sich jetzt mit nur 57 Jahren bereits zurückziehen und auf seinem Landgut Trübsal blasen? Merivel denkt nicht daran und begibt sich nach Frankreich, zum Sonnenkönig in dessen soeben erbautes Wunderwerk Versailles. Statt mit Pomp und Zeremoniell empfangen zu werden und gar zum Leibarzt Ludwigs XIV. aufzusteigen, muss er sich jedoch im Gesindehaus den Nachttopf mit einem holländischen Uhrmacher teilen! Als er der charmanten Louise de Flamanville begegnet, glaubt er an einen zweiten Frühling – der jäh zu enden droht, als ihn ein Ruf des englischen Hofes erreicht: Sir Merivel soll umgehend ans Krankenbett Charles’ II. eilen ...
