Thomas Starkey and the Commonwealth by Thomas F. Mayer

Book Description

Thomas Starkey (c. 1495-1538) was the most Italianate Englishman of his generation. This book places Starkey into new and more appropriate contexts, both biographical and intellectual, taking him out of others in which he does not belong, from displaced Roundhead to follower of Marsilio of Padua. Beginning with his native Cheshire, it traces his career through Oxford, Padua, Paris, Avignon, Padua again, and finally England, where he spent the last four years of his life trying to fulfil his ambition to serve the commonweal. Most of Starkey's career revolved around his patron Reginald Pole, scion of the highest nobility, but Starkey (and many other Englishmen) managed to balance loyalty to Pole with allegiance to Henry VIII. Out of favour with the king's secretary after the middle of 1536, Starkey turned increasingly to religion, continuing to cling to his conciliarist and Italian Evangelical opinions until his death.

Books By Author Thomas F. Mayer

Reforming Reformation by Thomas F. Mayer Reforming Reformation, Hardback (December 2012)

The Reformation used to be singular: a unique event that happened within a tidily circumscribed period of time, in a tightly constrained area and largely because of a single individual. Few students of early modern Europe would now accept this view. Offering a broad overview of current scholarly thinking.

Reginald Pole by Thomas F. Mayer Reginald Pole, Paperback (July 2007)

A life of Reginald Pole (1500-1558), among the most important of sixteenth-century international notables.

Political Thought and the Tudor Commonwealth by Thomas F. Mayer Political Thought and the Tudor Commonwealth, Hardback (December 1992)

Intellectual history has suffered in comparison to the institutional and political history of the Tudors in recent years, and this collection of essays is a concerted aim to redress the balance.
