Título: Suffolk Committees for Scandalous Ministers ...
Editorial: Boydell & Brewer Ltd
Año de publicación: 1970
Condición del libro: Brand new
In the 1640s Parliament intervened against clergymen with Royalist sympathies, and in the political jargon of the time they were referred to as 'Scandalous Ministers'. As the Civil War developed two Suffolk committees were empower ed to hear evidence against any minister (or schoolmaster) who was 'scandalous' in either life or doctrine, or in any way 'malignant' (ill-affected to Parliament). This volume shows how the national split was mirrored in a Suffolk village with questions of allegiance being posed at parish level. The records in this book are, for the most part, the charges bought by Suffolk parishioners, and provide an account of popular religious beliefs. Perhaps most valu able are the splendid cameos of rural life; of the constables of Blyford undertaking a midnight raid on an unlicenced alehouse to impress soldiers; of the Christmas celebrations at Little Cornard; of Nicholas Stoneham watching a S unday football match at Eyke.
