  • Andrew Melville (1545–1622)by Roger A. Mason; Steven J. Reid

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 134.95

    With the exception of John Knox, no one did more to shape the Scottish Reformation than Andrew Melville.

Renaissance Utopia complements recent scholarly work on early modern... more...

    This fresh exploration of the life, work and writing of Archbishop Pole, focuses particularly on Pole’s final years (1556-58) as Archbishop of Canterbury. Stressing the events and character of Pole's 'English' life, up to his exile in the 1530s, as well as in his final years in England, this book explores his close relationship with... more...

    Springer Publishing Company 2014; US$ 60.00

    "Each chapter depicts nurses facing and overcoming a multitude of challenges as they addressed the medical needs of rural Americans.

  • Castiglione's Allegoryby W. R. Albury

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95

    Approaching The Book of the Courtier as an early modern reader would have, author W.R. Albury explores aspects of the work which he argues are intentionally concealed and veiled in allegory. In this reading, Albury recovers a serious political message which he shows has a great deal of contemporary relevance, and which is lost from sight when the work... more...

  • God's Traitorsby Jessie Childs

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 21.99

    For many Catholics, the Elizabethan "Golden Age" was an alien concept.
