Persuasion and Conversion: Essays on Religion, Politics, and the Public Sphere in Early Modern England
A popular ‘culture of persuasion’ fostered by the Reformation promoted a displacement of late-medieval ‘sacramental culture’ through argument, textual interpretation, exhortation, reasoned opinion, and moral advice in both pulpit and press. This collection of essays addresses the dynamic interaction of religion and politics in the emerging ‘public sphere'.
