Reign of James VI by Julian Goodare

Book Description

The reign of James VI (1567-1625) remains one of the most enigmatic in Scottish history. There are long periods within it which resemble black holes in our knowledge. This study is a concerted attempt by a group of ten scholars of the reign, drawn from three different disciplines, to shed light on its politics and government, viewed through a series of perspectives. They include the royal court, which is analyzed separately through its literature, architecture and ceremony; noble factionalism; relations with England, James VI's paymaster; a revised model of tensions between church and state. It analyzes James as literary author, correspondent, husband and 'universal king.' It has a full introduction, extensive notes on further reading and an exhaustive index.

Kings, Lords and Men in Scotland and Britain, 1300-1625 by Julian Goodare Kings, Lords and Men in Scotland and Britain, 1300-1625, Hardback (May 2014)

Late medieval and early modern Scottish history has seen much recent work on 'kingship' and 'lordship'. But the 15th century and the 16th century are usually studied separately. This book brings them together in a fitting collection in tribute to Jenny Wormald, one of the few scholars to bridge this divide.

Scottish Witches and Witch-Hunters by Julian Goodare Scottish Witches and Witch-Hunters, Hardback (October 2013)

This book brings together twelve studies that collectively provide an overview of the main issues of live interest in Scottish witchcraft. As well as fresh studies of the well-established topic of witch-hunting, the book also launches an exploration of some of the more esoteric aspects of magical belief and practice.

Witchcraft and Belief in Early Modern Scotland by Julian Goodare Witchcraft and Belief in Early Modern Scotland, Hardback (December 2007)

This pioneering collection concentrates on witchcraft beliefs rather than witch-hunting. It ranges widely across areas of popular belief, culture and ritual practice, as well as dealing with intellectual life and incorporating regional and comparative elements.
