Angels in the Early Modern World by Peter Marshall
Book DescriptionBelief in the importance of angels was as widespread and intense in the early modern era as it had been in the middle ages. This volume is the first to consider how ideas about the nature, existence and activities of angels negotiated the religious, intellectual and cultural upheavals of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The contributors explore the fate and fortunes of these heavenly protectors and messengers against the backdrop of the Renaissance and Reformation and in the context of scientific change. Ranging from the British Isles and continental Europe to New England and Latin America, they consider how angels were implicated in the processes of Protestant and Catholic renewal, their relationship with witchcraft and magic, and their representation in literature and art. Based on original research, the essays offer genuinely fresh insight into the moments and movements that defined the early modern world.

Poseidon's Realm, Hardback (February 2016)
Peter Marshall, author of 15 books, voyages around the Aegean - Poseidon's Realm - in order to explore the evolution, nature and legacy of Greek civilization and to test his hunch that it must be seen from the point of view of the sea. The book brilliantly illuminates the culture and the people who helped form the seabed of Western civilization.
