9780851159300: Restoration Scotland, 1660-1690: Royalist Politics, Religion and Ideas (Studies in Early Modern Cultural, Political and Social History)

In the twilight years of Scottish independence, the Restoration period witnessed both the triumph of Stuart absolutism and the radical Covenanting resistance of the "Killing Times" immortalised in presbyterian memory. This is the first account of this fascinating and dramatic period in Scottish history. It begins with the widespread popular royalism that acclaimed Charles II's return to power in 1660 and concludes by examining the collapse of royal authority that occurred under his brother, James VII & II, and the events of the Williamite Revolution of 1688-90. In reconstructing the world of late-seventeenth century Scotland, this book draws on an extensive range of printed and manuscript sources, the majority of which have never been used by historians before. Amidst current interest in Scottish political and parliamentary history before 1707, this book emphasises the dynamic and characteristic cosmopolitanism of Restoration intellectual culture as revealed from a range of national, British and Continental perspectives. In doing so, it challenges numerous historiographical orthodoxies, and modifies conventional understanding of pre-Enlightenment Scotland.

Review:

A rich, rewarding work. THE HISTORIANA very welcome and useful work, with much to recommend it. EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY SCOTLANDA welcome addition to the meagre literature on Restoration Scotland. ALBION Convincing and timely.... Undoubtedly an important book in the field of Restoration studies. Jackson makes her arguments briskly, clearly and succinctly. Besides its obvious interest for students of Scottish history, historians of England will find numerous intriguing points of comparison with Scottish political and ecclesiological ideas. PARLIAMENTARY HISTORY (This) volume not only recovers an obscure story and relates it with nuance and balance, it is also rich and suggestive in its exploration of a range of related subjects.... Jackson's work will now become the standard work on Restoration Scotland and should also act as a point of departure for researchers on a wider front. H-NET ALBION Well-defined, closely-argued.. The author has illuminated a poorly-understood period.. An important and instructive work. SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY NEWS This book, firmly grounded on extensive primary research, triumphantly succeeds in its aim of reconstructing the diverse religious and political languages and `shard sensibilities' of Scotland in the reigns of Charles II and James VII and II. THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY Succeeds in providing a well contextualised and finely nuanced account of Restoration Scottish politics and political thought. It reveals the world of the Scottish political establishment as much more interesting and complex than has often been portrayed, far less isolated and extraordinary than has sometimes appeared.

Descrizione libro Boydell Brewer Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. The years following the Restoration of the Stuart monarchs to the throne are currently the subject of considerable scholarly enquiry regarding events in England, but this is the first modern study of political and religious attitudes in Scotland in the decades after the Restoration of Charles II in 1660. The popular mood in Scotland during that time swung from royalist enthusiasm for the Restoration through to disaffection under James VII and II, and political and religious ideas in Scotland reflected this shift. In her account of the ideological world of this a dramatic and fascinating period, Clare Jackson draws on an extensive and little-accessed range of printed and manuscript sources to reveal the dynamic nature of intellectual culture in pre-Enlightenment Scotland.
