Promotional Information

Paperback edition of a prize-winning account of the reign of King James VI and I.


'... weightily documented and authoritative in style ... it should definitively quash the old idea that James was nothing more than an ineffectual pedant who fancied himself a theologian.' Church Times '... scholars will be grateful to Patterson (and Cambridge University Press) for the comprehensiveness of this work ... this is [a] book which will define its particular subject for a long time'. The Virginia Quarterly Review 'Patterson's ... prose is so lucid and his narrative so clear that general readers ... will enjoy and learn much from this book.' The American Oxonian '... meticulously documented and well written. It fills a significant void in the re-evaluation of James's reign.' Renaissance Quarterly '... Patterson writes lucidly, treats other historians with appropriate irenicism, and should succeed in pushing Jacobean ecumenism from the margins into the mainstream of current historiography.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'This important volume is the culmination of many years' work on King James and his ecumenical commitments.' English Historical Review ' ... elegant and important'. The Downside Review ' ... meticulous, profoundly-researched'. Oxford Academic Journals
