'Conformists' And 'Church Trimmers': The Liturgical Legacy Of Restoration Anglicanism, John Ramsbottom Sep 2015

'Conformists' And 'Church Trimmers': The Liturgical Legacy Of Restoration Anglicanism, John Ramsbottom

John D. Ramsbottom

The attention paid to religion in recent accounts of Restoration England has had the refreshing result of adding complexity to the traditionally one-dimensional image of the established Church in this period. No longer is "Anglicanism" seen as synonymous with the reactionary creed of country gentlemen.


Presbyterians And 'Partial Conformity' In The Restoration Church Of England, John Ramsbottom Sep 2015

Presbyterians And 'Partial Conformity' In The Restoration Church Of England, John Ramsbottom

John D. Ramsbottom

In the early eighteenth century, the legacy of conflict among English Protestants found an outlet in the controversy over ‘occasional conformity’. During the years 1702–4, Tory backbenchers in the House of Commons introduced a series of bills designed to strengthen the Corporation and Test Acts (1661, 1673), which had required all officials of local government and holders of Crown appointments to adhere to the established Church of England. Since the passage of these legal tests, Protestant Nonconformists seeking office had circumvented their intent by taking communion in an Anglican parish as seldom as once a year, while attending meetings ...

European Review Of History: Revue Européenne D'Histoire, Eliza Ablovatski Jun 2015

European Review Of History: Revue Européenne D'Histoire, Eliza Ablovatski

Eliza Ablovatski

Both contemporaries and historians have associated the Soviet-style revolutions in Munich and Budapest in the spring of 1919 (and the earlier autumn 1918 revolutions) with prominent Jewish revolutionaries. From a transnational and comparative context, we unhinge the connections often made between the role of Jews in the revolutions and the role of the revolutions in explaining later Central European anti-Semitism. In 1919, there was no option other than cosmopolitanism in these two cities. Communism and anti-Communism were both consciously international and transnational ideologies. Revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries worked through transnational conspiratorial networks. Ideological and historical perspectives were similarly cosmopolitan; the battle ...

The Jacobin Republic Under Fire : The Federalist Revolt In The French Revolution, Paul Hanson Jan 2015

The Jacobin Republic Under Fire : The Federalist Revolt In The French Revolution, Paul Hanson

Paul R. Hanson

"One of the central questions of the French Revolution is what happened to the country from the time the monarchy collapsed in the summer of 1791, when the prospects for popular democracy seemed brightest, to the Terror of 1793-94, when the Committee of Public Safety ruled by fiat and repression. A key moment during this interim period was the so-called Federalist Revolt, when four provincial cities - Caen, Bordeaux, Lyon, and Marseille - rebelled against the more radical revolutionaries in Paris threatening to plunge France into civil war. Over the years some very good work has been published on the Federalist Revolt ...


Contesting The French Revolution, Paul Hanson Jan 2015

Contesting The French Revolution, Paul Hanson

Paul R. Hanson

"This book presents an overview of what led up to this pivotal event, the turning points that shaped it, and its far-reaching effects, as well as examining the most significant historiographical debates about this period. Were the events of 1789 a social revolution or a political accident? Did they mark the rise of industrial capitalism or the birth of modern democracy? Was the Reign of Terror a response to foreign war and domestic resistance or the product of Jacobin ideology? Paul Hanson offers an engaging analysis of these debates, showing us how historical interpretation of the French Revolution has been ...


Historical Dictionary Of The French Revolution, Paul Hanson Jan 2015

Historical Dictionary Of The French Revolution, Paul Hanson

Paul R. Hanson

The French Revolution remains one of the most examined events in world history. Most historians would argue that it was the first "modern" revolution, an event so momentous that it gave the word revolution its current connotation of a political and/or social upheaval that marks a decisive break with the past and moves a society in a forward or progressive direction.- WorldCat

The Dutch Black Legend, Carmen Nocentelli Aug 2014

The Dutch Black Legend, Carmen Nocentelli

Carmen Nocentelli

English “Hollandophobia” is usually understood as a function or reflection of the rivalries that characterized Anglo-Dutch relations during the seventeenth century. Working against such a circumscribed understanding, this essay contends that Hollandophobia is best thought of as a “Dutch Black Legend”—that is, as a deliberate repetition of the Hispanophobic topoi known as the Spanish Black Legend. Only by acknowledging the intimate relationship between these two phenomena can we make sense of Hollandophobia’s peculiar features while discerning how this discourse helped construct what the English took to be proper Europeanness.

Review Of Michael Ostling, Between The Devil And The Host: Imagining Witchcraft In Early Modern Poland. Oxford University Press, 2011, For Polin/American Association For Polish Jewish Studies, Magda Teter May 2013

Review Of Michael Ostling, Between The Devil And The Host: Imagining Witchcraft In Early Modern Poland. Oxford University Press, 2011, For Polin/American Association For Polish Jewish Studies, Magda Teter

Magda Teter

Witches and witchcraft have fascinated not only the people of the premodern era, but also modern scholars who produced a tremendous amount of scholarship that has covered not only a large geographic area but also a wide variety of topics related to this subject in European history. Scholars have studied the legal and cultural underpinnings of witch-hunts; records of witch trials and works on witchcraft have served scholars as sources for the history of women and gender and the history of folk medical practices in the premodern era. Anyone interested in the history of witchcraft and magic in Europe can ...

Suessen Is Now Free Of Jews: World War Ii, The Holocaust, And Rural Judaism, Gilya Schmidt Jun 2012

Suessen Is Now Free Of Jews: World War Ii, The Holocaust, And Rural Judaism, Gilya Schmidt

Gilya Gerda Schmidt

Süssen Is Now Free of Jews offers a close look at the legacy of a few Jewish families from Süssen—a village in the District of Göppingen, which is located in the state of Baden Württemberg in southern Germany. The author, Gilya Gerda Schmidt, looks at this rural region through the lens of two Jewish families—the Langs and

the Ottenheimers—who settled there in the early twentieth century. As a child, she shared with the Langs the same living space for just a few months. She remembers her mother’s telling her of the Jews who lived in Süssen ...


Schooling And Society : The Politics Of Education In Prussia / Book Review, Joanne Schneider Apr 2012

Schooling And Society : The Politics Of Education In Prussia / Book Review, Joanne Schneider

Joanne Schneider

Reviewed work(s): Schooling and Society: The Politics of Education in Prussia and Bavaria, 1750-1900 by Karl A. Schleunes


Schooling And Society, Joanne Schneider Apr 2012

Schooling And Society, Joanne Schneider

Joanne Schneider

A much repeated truism credits nineteenth century Germany, especially Prussia, with the most advanced public education system in Europe. Karl Schleunes's Schooling and Society examines this notion by exploring the politics of education not only in Prussia, but also Bavaria. What emerges is an informative discussion of how the fortunes of public school reform were tied to various government leaders' goals for education, in association with the wider political and social scene.

"They Have Travailed Into A Wrong Latitude:" The Laws Of England, Indian Settlements, And The British Imperial Constitution 1726-1773, Arthur Fraas Mar 2012

"They Have Travailed Into A Wrong Latitude:" The Laws Of England, Indian Settlements, And The British Imperial Constitution 1726-1773, Arthur Fraas

Arthur Mitchell Fraas

In the mid-eighteenth century the British Crown claimed a network of territories around the globe as its "Empire." Through a close study of law and legal instutions in Bombay, Madras, Calcutta, as well as London, this dissertation examines what it meant to be a part of that Empire. These three cities on the Indian subcontinent were administered by the English East India Company and as such have often seemed abberant or unique to scholars of eighteenth-century empire and law. This dissertation argues that these Indian cities fit squarely within an imperial legal and governmental framework common to the wider British ...

Springtime For Freedom Of Religion Or Belief: Will Newly Democratic Arab States Guarantee International Human Rights Norms Or Perpetuate Their Violation?, Robert Blitt Dec 2011

Springtime For Freedom Of Religion Or Belief: Will Newly Democratic Arab States Guarantee International Human Rights Norms Or Perpetuate Their Violation?, Robert Blitt

Robert C. Blitt

The Arab Spring has generated unprecedented and seismic political and social upheaval across the Arab world. The reasons for the outbreak of widespread and vociferous public protest are myriad, but generally understood as including long-simmering resentment of government corruption and repression, underwhelming economic development, chronic unemployment and poor respect for human rights, including the treatment of individuals and groups affiliated with political manifestations of Islam. Despite the initial drama surrounding the street rallies, two years on, the pace of change has grown fitful and uncertain. The purpose of this chapter is to consider one narrow aspect of the Arab Spring ...

Nationalists Who Feared The Nation: Adriatic Multi-Nationalism In Habsburg Dalmatia, Trieste, And Venice, Dominique Reill Dec 2011

Nationalists Who Feared The Nation: Adriatic Multi-Nationalism In Habsburg Dalmatia, Trieste, And Venice, Dominique Reill

Dominique Kirchner Reill

We can often learn as much from political movements that failed as from those that achieved their goals. Nationalists Who Feared the Nation looks at one such frustrated movement: a group of community leaders and writers in Venice, Trieste, and Dalmatia during the 1830s, 40s, and 50s who proposed the creation of a multinational zone surrounding the Adriatic Sea. At the time, the lands of the Adriatic formed a maritime community whose people spoke different languages and practiced different faiths but identified themselves as belonging to a single region of the Hapsburg Empire. While these activists hoped that nationhood could ...
