9780199604692: Reformation Fictions: Polemical Protestant Dialogues in Elizabethan England

Reformation Fictions rehabilitates some twenty polemical dialogues published in Elizabethan England, for the first time giving them a literary, historicist and, to a lesser extent, theological reading. By juxtaposing these Elizabethan publications with key Lutheran and Calvinist dialogues, theological tracts, catechisms, sermons, and dramatic interludes, Antoinina Bevan Zlatar explores how individual dialogists exploit the fictionality of their chosen genre.

Writers like John Véron, Anthony Gilby, George Gifford, John Nicholls, Job Throckmorton, and Arthur Dent, to name the most prolific, not only understood the dialogue's didactic advantages over other genres, they also valued it as a strategic defence against the censor. They were convinced, as Erasmus had been before them, that a cast of lively characters presented antithetically, often with a liberal dose of Lucianic humour, worked wonders with carnal readers. Here was an exemplary way to make doctrine entertaining and memorable, here was the honey to make the medicine go down. They knew too that these dialogues, particularly their use of manifestly imaginary interlocutors and a plot of conversion, licensed the delivery of singularly radical messages.

What comes to light is a body of literature, often scurrilous, always serious, that gives us access to early modern concepts of fiction, rhetoric, and satire. It showcases the imagery of Protestant polemic against Catholicism, and puritan invective against the established Elizabethan Church, all the while triggering the frisson that comes from the illusion of eavesdropping on early modern conversations.

Recensione:

Bevan Zlatar is well in command of the technical vocabulary throughout, but, thankfully, avoids the nerdiness common among those who discuss Renaissance rhetoric. The glossary of lesser-known rhetorical terms at the end of the study, illustrated both by contemporary definitions and by examples from the dialogues themselves, is a particularly useful resource. ( Alison Shell, Ecclesiastical History. Vol. 64.2)

a fine example of how careful textual scholarship should be done. ( Peter Carlson, Comitatus)

a solid piece of scholarship ... for Elizabethan England, Bevan Zlatar has taken an important step in reviving and understanding the Reformation era dialogue. ( Michael Bruening, Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance)

historians will find this highly intelligent reassessment of twenty polemical Protestant dialogues of the Elizabethan period both very readable and well worth the read. ( Ian Green, English Historical Review)

Reformation Fictions should be consulted by anyone interested in English Renaissance nondramatic literature and the history and theology of the later English Reformation. ( Mark Rankin, Sixteenth Century Journal)

L'autore:

Antoinina Bevan Zlatar read English at Lincoln College, Oxford, before completing a doctorate in English literature and Reformation history at the University of Geneva.
