Editorial Reviews


"Hoak and his colleagues are to be congratulated for their rich contributions to the political historiography of Tudor England." Sixteenth Century Journal

"The standard of contributions is high, and the authors score again and again by their reinterpretation of familiar material and their close readings of texts and images....The volume is likely to have the greatest impct at an intermediate level, among students at universities. It would be interesting to put the volume into the hands of a good student and ask him or her to reconstitute the rules of political culture from these twelve essays alone to describe both the system and direction of change." E. Timothy Smith, American Historical Review

"Tudor Political Culture is a handsomely illustrated collection of twelve original interdisciplinary essays that illuminate the unwritten codes and mentalities of Tudor England....in presenting new material to widen and change our perception of how power was revealed during that time....They enlarge our understanding of Tudor political culture and thus lead to a better understanding of the age." Robert C. Barddock, Renaissance Quarterly

"The work performed by the editor and contributors to Tudor Political Culture is on the right track." Joseph S. Block, Albion

"This book is an important collection of 12 interdisciplinary essays, which freshly assess Tudor mentality and, in particular, Tudor political culture." Wolfgang, Riehle, International Journal of the Classical Tradition

Book Description

This book of original scope and methodology consists of twelve interdisciplinary essays on the ideas, images and rituals of Tudor and early Stuart society. Through the exploitation of new manuscript material, or hitherto untapped artistic sources--the plates reproduce nearly sixty contemporary images--the authors open up new perspectives on the ideas, institutions and rituals of political society.Drawing on the evidence of art, literature, and using the latest techniques for the discovery of lost mentalities, key aspects of Tudor political culture are explored, including royal iconography, funereal symbolism, parliamentary elections, political vocabularies, kinship and family at court and in the country, and the architecture of urban authority. In his Introduction the editor uses the example of Henry VIII's historical break with Rome to suggest the seamless links between politics and political culture, how and why the revolution of the 1530s needs to be seen against the backdrop of early-Tudor memories of Henry V, the cult of chivalry and the invasion of France (1513), and the pre-Reformation imagery of 'imperial' kingship.
