With a spotlight on England from the accession of Elizabeth I to the mid-1620s, this ebook examines the perform of direct, scholarly disputation among essentially opposing and normally adversarial Catholic, Protestant and nonconformist puritan divines. Introducing a sort of discourse hitherto missed in stories of non secular controversy, the amount works to rehabilitate a physique of fabric purely formerly tested as a part of the good, subjective mass of polemic produced within the wake of the Reformation. In so doing, it argues that public non secular disputation – debate among opposing priests, prepared in response to strict educational formulae – can provide new insights into modern ideals, suggestion methods and conceptions of non secular id, in addition to an obtainable and dramatic window into the key theological controversies of the age. Formal disputation crossed confessional strains, and the following presents a chance for a wide, comparative research. greater than the other kind of interplay or fabric, those encounters – and the dialogic debts they produced – displayed the shared tools underpinning spiritual divisions, permitting Catholic and reformed priests to satisfy at the related box. the current quantity asserts the importance of public spiritual disputation (and debts thereof) during this regard, and explores their use of formal common sense, educational strategy and recorded discussion shape to strengthen non secular controversy. during this, it additional demonstrates how we would start to flow from the surviving resource fabric for those encounters to the occasions themselves, and the way the disputations then provide a impressive new glimpse into the development, explanation and expression of post-Reformation spiritual argument.
