Product description

Despite the best efforts of the English government, Elizabethan Ireland remained resolutely Catholic. Hutchinson examines this `failure' of the Protestant Reformation. He argues that the emerging political concept of the absolutist state forms a crucial link between English policy in Ireland and the aims of the Calvinist reformers.
