Beschreibung:

Contents: Cornwall and the Cornish gentry; the religious landscape - Papists, Puritans and Arminians; the political landscape - harmony and faction 1600-1638; local government and defence 1600-1638; the impact of arbitrary taxation; the approach of war.
The history of Cornwall in the first half of the seventeenth century is both dramatic and turbulent. In "Faction and Faith," Anne Duffin draws upon extensive new source material, combining national documents and local family collections with a detailed analysis of churchwardens' accounts, borough records and over 350 wills. She challenges the established view that Cornwall was naturally royalist and presents a picture of a politically-aware and religiously-splintered society. "Faction and Faith," the first major publication since 1933 on this period in Cornwall," "challenges the established view of Cornish society in the early seventeenth century through the extensive use of new source materials from national and local records.
Market: Scholars of early seventeenth century history, academic and local libraries, postgraduate and undergraduate students of history, all those with an interest in Cornish and Civil War history.
