Nota Bene Peter Escalante

The Political Use of the Bible in Early Modern Britain

The Jubilee Centre offers a lengthy report by Dr Gai Ferdon on the political use of the Bible in early modern Britain. The absence of any mention of Richard Hooker is extremely curious and might have something to do with the somewhat superficial reading of the relation of Gospel and Mosaic law, and the consequences of that relation, in Milton. Hobbes is also left unmentioned. Nevertheless, it is well worth reading and part of a conversation which, as Dr Coffey says in the introduction, “could hardly be more necessary.”
