Integrating her extensive knowledge of sixteenth and seventeenth century literature, Judy Sproxton examines the expression of a recurring theme in history, that of the tension between religious faith and political and militant action. Violence and Religion offers a detailed and fascinating study of the writings of some of the major figures of the time including Calvin, D'Aubigne Cromwell, Winstanley and the poet Andrew Marvell. Looking at texts written during two periods of major political upheaval and civil unrest in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, she explores the division between their understanding of the self-interest of humanity and the will of God.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."well worth exploring.."
-"Religious Studies Review, January 1997
"Refreshingly free of jargon. . .It is a straight forward analysis of the views of significant political figures and writers during the French Civil Wars of the late sixteenth century."
-Church History, Sept. 97
"Judy Sproxton is unusual in having a deep knowledge both of the French civil wars fo the 16th century and of the 17th century English Revolution. Even more unusually, she is soaked in the literature of the two countries. In consequence her work sheds much new light on both."
-Christpher Hill The author...aims to show how the reformation led certain sixteenth- and seventeenth-centuries persons to challenge political authority in the name of religion.
