SKU: 1380144395241

Although films based on historical events are usually criticized for their deviations from facts, this paper argues that such films can be used fruitfully in the classroom. Using the example of a course on Elizabeth I, the paper shows that films produced at different times and places can be presented and discussed in ways that demonstrate to students that interpretations of historical people and events are constantly changing and are shaped by the contexts in which they are produced.

$10.00
SKU: 1380144058853

Recent studies of the ius reformandi examine the right of reformation’s theoretical development while overlooking the process of conflict and negotiation that led to a practical right of reformation prior to the 1555 Peace of Augsburg. In October 1544, the imperial city of Augsburg installed an evangelical preacher in Mindelaltheim, a village in the Habsburg margravate of Burgau.

$10.00
SKU: 1380143705069

Recent  analysis of John Milton’s first tract justifying King Charles I’s trial and execution in 1649 has highlighted its rational argumentation and secular foundation. This essay examines Milton’s use of biblical, classical, and national historical types of the regicide to exhort his readers to view the king as a tyrant, his death as a biblically and historically warranted punishment, and the current moment as a providential occasion to establish a godly English commonwealth.

Paulus Melissus and Jacobus Falckenburgius: Two German Protestant Humanists at the Court of Queen Elizabeth

$10.00
SKU: 1380143353791

This article discusses two German Protestant writers who used Latin to insert themselves into the culture of the Elizabethan court. Jacobus Falckenburgius’s two collections of verse indicate the strategies and, when placed within the political context of the court, the perils that a Reformed Protestant encountered in advancing his religious and political commitments. Like Falckenburgius, Paulus Melissus saw England as a safe haven from the religious wars. He used his considerable literary skills more openly to seek professional advancement at Elizabeth’s court.

Learning and Masculinity in Manuscripts of Ritual Magic of the Later Middle Ages and Renaissance

$10.00
SKU: 1380142999724

Manuscripts of late medieval and Renaissance ritual magic provide a unique insight into the gender construction of learned men. They reveal a subjective world of desire and anxiety that has for the most part been a matter of conjecture in the literature on masculinity. These manuscripts also overcome one of the limitations associated with the anxiety model: the tendency to regard masculinity as constructed in negative relation to other social groups. In part, learned masculinity was constructed according to external standards, most commonly from the world of the aristocracy.
