The Revolution in Time explores the idea that people in Western Europe changed the way they thought about the concept of time over the early modern period, by examining reactions to the 1688-1689 revolution in England. The study examines how those who lived through the extraordinary collapse of James II's regime perceived this event as it unfolded, and how they set it within their understanding of history. It questions whether a new understanding of chronology - one which allowed fundamental and human-directed change - had been widely adopted by this point in the past; and whether this might have allowed witnesses of the revolution to see it as the start of a new era, or as an opportunity to shape a novel, 'modern', future for England. It argues that, with important exceptions, the people of the era rejected dynamic views of time to retain a 'static' chronology that failed to fully conceptualise evolution in history. Bewildered by the rapid events of the revolution itself, people forced these into familiar scripts. Interpreting 1688-1689 later, they saw it as a reiteration of timeless principles of politics, or as a stage in an eternal and pre-determined struggle for true religion. Only slowly did they see come to see it as part of an evolving and modernising process - and then mainly in response to opponents of the revolution, who had theorised change in order to oppose it. The volume thus argues for a far more complex and ambiguous model of changes in chronological conception than many accounts have suggested; and questions whether 1688-1689 could be the leap toward modernity that recent interpretations have argued.

Guy Fawkes and his gunpowder plot, the 'Man in the Iron Mask' and the 'Devils of Loudun' have offered some of the most compelling images of the early modern period. Conspiracies, real or imagined, were an essential feature of early modern life, offering a seemingly rational and convincing explanation for patterns of political and social behaviour.Conspiracies and Conspiracy Theory in Early Modern Europe examines conspiracies and conspiracy theories from an interdisciplinary perspective, by combining the theoretical approach of the history of ideas with specific examples from the period. Each contribution addresses a number of common themes through a series of original case studies, examining why certain groups were perceived in conspiratorial terms, and how far, if at all, these attitudes were challenged or redefined by the enlightenment.

This book explores the emergence of the nationally diverging paths taken by England and Germany in relation to the legal concept of self-defence. It explores how various theories of legitimate resistance to authority were developed and how they came to influence one another. In particular it is argued that German theories played a much greater role than has hitherto been acknowledged in influencing English concepts of 'natural rights' as discussed by such men as Parker and Locke.

The period between the Williamite war and the act of union saw different groups in Irish society forced to reassess their ideas of political and national identity, against the background of a changing society at home and intellectual and political revolution abroad. This volume of essays, deriving from a Folger Library, Washington, seminar, examines radical, patriot and conservative political ideas, from the debates on the meaning of the Revolution of 1688 to the emergence of democratic republicanism, and a redefined conservatism, in the 1790s. A concluding overview by Professor J.G.A. Pocock puts the Irish case in the wider context of the Atlantic world of the eighteenth century. -- Publisher description.

View: 403

Von Vaterland war bereits im 16. Jahrhundert die Rede gewesen. Seit dem Beginn des 17. Jahrhunderts bezeichneten sich einzelne Personen und Personengruppen mit einem neuen Wort, sie nannten sich 'Patrioten'. Erst seit dem 18. Jahrhundert sprachen die Zeitgenossen von ?Patriotismus'. Um jene Patrioten vor dem Patriotismus geht es in den 16 Beitragen dieses Bandes.Im Zentrum steht die Frage nach den Bedeutungen der Begriffe Vaterland und Patriot, nach ihrer Verflechtung mit dem Hinweis auf die Nation, und nach den Absichten derer, die sich dieser Begriffe bedienten. Die zunehmende Bezeichnung des Neologismus ?Patriot' seit dem fruhen 17. Jahrhundert verweist auf Veranderungen in den europaischen Gesellschaften, in deren Gefuge sich die Natur der Legitimitat der Herrschaftsbezeichnungen veranderte und den Beteiligten nahelegte, sich selbst mit einem neuen Begriff zu bezeichnen, um im eigenen Gemeinwesen Teilhabe an der Herrschaft fordern zu konnen. Der Band untersucht und beschreibt diese Veranderungen.
