Political Communication and Political Culture in England, 1558-1688

Political Communication and Political Culture in England, 1558-1688 by Barbara J. Shapiro
English | November 7th, 2012 | ISBN: 0804783624 | 416 Pages | PDF | 1.97 MB

This book surveys the channels through which political ideas and knowledge were conveyed to the English people from the beginning of the reign of Elizabeth I to the Revolution of 1688. Shapiro argues that an assessment of English political culture requires an examination of all means by which this culture was expressed and communicated. While the discussion focuses primarily on genres such as the sermon, newsbook, poetry, and drama, it also considers the role of events and institutions. Shapiro is the first to explore and elucidate the entire web of communication in early modern English political life.

What were the factors that contributed to Bologna’s unique confluence of women with art, science, and religion?
