Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a book...which contributes substantially to the ongoing rehabilitation of the dreamer. ...this is...a book which will define its particular subject for a long time." The Virginia Quarterly Review

"...weightily documented and authoritative in style, Patterson's study is most convincing of all in its admiration of James...." Church Times

"Even though the work is scholarly, it is quite readable and would be enjoyable to anyone interested in church history. ...this account of his goals and his dedication in spite of disappointments is somehow quite contemporary. This book can be read as history or as a bridge from the past into the world of today." Charlotte Booth, The Living Church

"While Patterson's main audience is other scholars of the late Elizabethan, Jacobean, and early Caroline period, his prose is so lucid and his narrative so clear that general readers, if they ignore the footnotes, will enjoy and learn much from this book." Ronald A. Rebholz, The American Oxonian

"In the era of the 180-page monograph so favored by cost-conscious publishers today, scholars will be grateful to Patterson (and Cambridge University Press) for the comprehensiveness of this work. If at times Patterson seems determined to share every detail he has uncovered, or repeats himself unnecessarily, this is nevertheless a book which will define its particular subject for a long time." Michael F. Graham, The Virginia Quarterly Review

"This is a substantial and interesting book on James VI and I as religious reconciler and political peacemaker....it is an important addition to the efforts to revise our historical judgement of James's reign....Patterson has written an impressive volume. His sure-footed use of extensive primary sources is very impressive, as is his analysis of James's theories and theology, and the ways in which they shaped the kin's policies and actions. This book is welcome and valuable contribution to the historical rehabilitation of James VI and I as a theologian and statesman." Caroline Litzenberger, West Virginia Shakespeare and Renaissance Association

"W.B. Pattersons' erudite, interesting, and valuable book contributes to two waves of current historiographical activity." Jerrold Seigel, American Historical Review

"Patterson's careful scholarship makes this book an important contribution to the study of both theology and diplomacy in seventeenth-century Europe. The book offers thorough discussions of several of the period's thorniest questions of doctrine and international relations. It also fits nicely into recent scholarship on James himself, revising perceptions of him in a more positive direction." Catherine Patterson, Anglican Theological Review

"This important, scholarly book is the latest contribution to the series, Cambridge Studies in Early Modern History. It should also be noted that the book is written in a style and with a felicity that is admirable." John Booty, Sewanee Theological Review

"...this work helpfully breaks new ground in understanding key dimensions of James's reign..." Trinity Journal

Book Description

This is a historical study of the career of King James VI and I, as king of Scotland (1567-1625) and England (1603-1625), who achieved a union of the crowns as the first king of Great Britain, and who undertook to end the recurring religious wars. His peace-making by diplomatic means was complemented by his efforts to foster closer relations among the churches. The peace which he helped to maintain by these initiatives, though cut short by the coming of the Thirty Years' War, was immensely beneficial both to Britain and to the other countries of Europe.

All the so-called African American had their history stolen from them by the European race, they never knew that King James VI and I, was an Hebrew Israelite, In 1600 the Romans took down King James and white washed the color of his face.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Brian M. Fiore on November 30, 2000
Format: Paperback
Dr. Patterson's King James VI and I and the Reunion of Christendom is a significant contribution to the volume of works written about early 17th Century . The work shows that James tried to acheive an ecumenical union among the fractured states of Europe in a century that saw one crisis after another. The incredible amount of research that went into this book is clearly evident. This would make an excellent addition to anyone's library.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By John R. Thomas, Jr. on December 13, 2001
Format: Paperback
A very thorough and perceptive analysis of the Reign of James VI of Scotland, later to be James I of England. Patterson's depiction of James as a conciliatory force within British Christendom is well supported in this excellent period history. Articulate and intellectually stimulating.
