Abstract:
This study investigates the ubiquitous presence of angels in Early Modern England c.1480-1700, recognising their importance as an exceptionally promising means of exploring contemporary religious cultures and mentalities. It engages with current debates surrounding the impact and long term repercussions of religious reform during a period of dramatic upheavals as well as striking continuities, and raises questions about the ways in which doctrine and practice evolved following the Reformation. On the understanding that confessional identities were conditioned by conflict within and between different groupings, as well as seeking to uncover the ‘Protestant’ angel it will also examine how those outside of the official church treated the angelic motif. It will seek to utilise angels as a shared theoretical ‘space’ that facilitated and contributed to the processes of religious change, and to illuminate shifting understandings in religious cultures more broadly.
