Britain & Europe, 1500-1780 by Ralph A. Houlbrooke

Book Description

Britain & Europe, 1500-1780 sets the making of Great Britain in its European context. It describes how England and Wales came together with Scotland, first under one king in 1603, and then in the parliamentary union in 1707. It follows the development of the British kingdoms' relations with their mainland European neighbours and Ireland, culminating in the emergence of the newly created United Kingdom as one of the foremost European powers. It explores numerous political, religious, economic and cultural connections between Britain and the rest of Europe during the centuries between the Renaissance and the Industrial Revolution.

Death, Religion and the Family in England, 1480-1750 by Ralph A. Houlbrooke Death, Religion and the Family in England, 1480-1750, Paperback (October 2000)

The author examines the effects of religious change on the English "way of death" between 1480 and 1750. He discusses relatively neglected aspects of the subject such as the death-bed, will-making and the last rites, and describes the development of the English funeral sermon after the Middle Ages.
