Tudor Rebellions, now in its sixth edition, gives a chronological account of the major rebellions against the Tudor monarchy from the reign of King Henry VII until the death of Queen Elizabeth I in 1603. It also throws light on some of the main themes of Tudor history, including the dynasty’s attempt to bring the north and west under the control of the capital, the progress of the English Reformation and the impact of inflation, taxation and enclosure on society. This new edition has been thoroughly revised to take into account the exciting and innovative work on the subject in recent years and bring the historiographical debates right up to date. It now includes additional documents and extended discussions to bring to life the complex events and politics of the rebellions. The primary sources, alongside a narrative history, allow students to fully explore these turbulent times, seeking to understand what drove Tudor people to rebel and what sort of people were inclined to do so. In doing so, the book considers both ‘high’ and ‘low’ politics, and the concerns of both the noble and the unprivileged in Tudor society. With supplementary materials including a chronology, who’s who and guide to further reading along with maps and images, Tudor Rebellions is an invaluable resource for all students of Tudor history.

Between 1544 and 1604, Tudor England was involved in a series of wars which strained government and society to their limits. By the time Elizabeth became queen in 1558, England and Wales were likened to 'a bone thrown between two dogs' - the great European powers of France and Spain. Elizabeth's Wars tells the story of how Elizabeth I and her government overcame early obstacles and gradually rebuilt England's military power on both land and sea, absorbing vital lessons about modern warfare from 'secret wars' fought on the Continent and in the waters of the New World. Elizabeth herself was a reluctant participant in foreign wars and feared the political and material costs of overseas combat - misgivings which proved fully justified during England's great war with Spain in the 1580s and '90s. Nevertheless, Elizabeth's armies and navy succeeded in fighting Spain to a standstill in campaigns which spanned the Low Countries, northern France, Spain and the Atlantic, as well as the famous Armada campaign of 1588; whilst in Ireland the last Irish resistance to total English domination of the country was finally crushed towards the end of Elizabeth's reign. Combining original work and a synthesis of existing research, Paul E.J. Hammer offers a lively new examination of these long and costly, but ultimately successful, wars - military exploits which were to prove impossible acts to follow for Elizabeth's immediate successors.

Birth Marriage and Death 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.

This is a major study of the 1549 rebellions, the largest and most important risings in Tudor England. Based upon extensive archival evidence, the book sheds fresh light on the causes, course and long-term consequences of the insurrections. Andy Wood focuses on key themes in the social history of politics, concerning the end of medieval popular rebellion; the Reformation and popular politics; popular political language; early modern state formation; speech, silence and social relations; and social memory and the historical representation of the rebellions. He examines the long-term significance of the rebellions for the development of English society, arguing that the rebellions represent an important moment of discontinuity between the late medieval and the early modern periods. This compelling history of Tudor politics from the bottom up will be essential reading for late medieval and early modern historians as well as early modern literary critics.

Elizabeth I was Queen of England for almost forty-five years. The daughter of Henry VIII and Ann Boleyn, as an infant she was briefly accepted as her father’s heir. After her mother was executed at her father’s command she was declared illegitimate and led a sometimes scandalous existence until her accession to the throne at the age of twenty-five. Elizabeth oversaw a vibrant age of exploration and literature and established herself, the "Virgin Queen", a national icon that lives on in the popular imagination. But Elizabeth was England’s second female monarch, and was greatly influenced by the experiences and mistakes of the reign of her half-sister, Mary I, before her. During her reign, Elizabeth had to perform a complicated balancing act in religious matters. As religious wars raged in Europe, Elizabeth herself a moderate Protestant, had to manage an inherited Catholic realm and the demands of zealous Protestants. The importance of such familiar features of Elizabeth’s reign as the presence in England of Mary Queen of Scots and her enduring efforts to take the throne, the Spanish armada, and the origins of English colonial expansion beyond the British archipelago all receive fresh attention in this engaging book. This new biography sheds light on Elizabeth’s early life, influences and on her personal religious beliefs as well as examining her reign, politics and reassesses Elizabeth’s reluctance to marry, a matter for which she has been much praised, but which is here judged one of the second queen regnant’s more problematic decisions. Judith M. Richards takes an objective and rounded view of Elizabeth’s whole life and provides the perfect introduction for students and general readers alike.

Unlike her father, Henry VIII, and sister. Elizabeth I. Mary Tudor took no particular pride in being English. She restored the church which her brother had destroyed and the Papal jurisdiction which her father had excluded. But most important her support of the Emperor Charles V led her to marry his son. Philip of Spain. This marriage was bitterly opposed in France. The plot led by Wyatt was detected and the rebellion in favour of Elizabeth, was subdued. But resetment was not subdued in fact it was increased by Philip's plans to increase his power. The plot led by Henry Dudley was squashed at an early stage: Mary survived and Philip diverted his interest elsewhere. This book is a detailed examination of the opposition to Mary and an important step in the scholarly revision of the reputation.

Literature and Degree in Renaissance England

"In this volume Peter Holbrook considers the complex interrelations between the literature and social structures of late-sixteenth- and early-seventeenth-century England. Arguing that social stratification is one of the central topics of much literature of the time, Holbrook draws on recent work in early modern English social history to describe the ways in which discursive modes in particular Renaissance texts articulate social difference. He argues that despite recent influential historicizations of English Renaissance literature, we still need a nuanced understanding of the ways in which "degree," the structure of social distinctions in Renaissance England, was symbolized in the period's literature. Holbrook suggests that it is time to reconsider approaches that take contradiction to be the key fact of English Renaissance social and socioliterary life, and look instead at the variety of ways in which Renaissance writers articulate the relations of different social coups." "After an opening chapter arguing for the central importance of status to Elizabethan and Jacobean drama, Holbrook turns to particular Renaissance texts that seem to take degree - or social position - as their subject, and that are at the same time acutely aware of the social significance of discursive modes themselves. Thus, in analyzing the work of the pamphleteer Thomas Nashe, Holbrook offers an account of Nashe's style as an attempt to turn to advantage its author's difficult and ambiguous social position. Holbrook also discusses plays (such as Arden of Faversham, A Yorkshire Tragedy, and A Woman Killed with Kindness) that complicate the high genre of tragedy by representing middling or non-aristocratic characters in that mode. Finally, he turns to some Shakespearean treatments of degree in both comedies and tragedies. A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Taming of the Shrew, King Lear, Coriolanus, and The Two Noble Kinsmen are seen as addressing in fictional form - sometimes critically - aspects of social hierarchy. Each of the texts considered here, Holbrook suggests, testifies to a willingness in the period to use literature to explore, in a status-obsessed society, the nature of degree. Throughout the author's concern is to stress the ways in which Renaissance texts are aware of the "socially symbolic" character of discursive modes (the ways in which literary form is social form), as well as to urge the revision of a currently dominant model for describing social and socioliterary relations in the English Renaissance - that based upon a simple dichotomy of elite versus populace."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Until recently, the reign of Mary Tudor was generally seen as a ‘sterile interlude’ in the Tudor century, with Mary herself dismissed as ‘Bloody Mary’. Extensive research in the past several decades has overturned these assumptions in almost every respect. In this succinct and up-to-date introduction to Mary’s reign, Tittler and Richards provide new insight into the circumstances of Mary’s accession and go on to show that her reign was a lot more stable, and her regime much more competent and innovative, than once believed. This fully revised third edition includes a diverse range of primary sources and sheds new light on a variety of topics, such as: · The complexities of Mary’s relations with Philip of Spain · The restoration of Catholicism · The use of visual as well as literary means to legitimize and support Mary’s rule · The context for the war with France This concise and thought-provoking introduction is ideal for students and interested readers at all levels.
