Synopsis : This book documents the commitment of the commanders of Charles I’s armies to religious observance and moral discipline. Through a close textual analysis of printed military regulations, royal proclamations, and injunctions, a long tradition of British military regulation is outlined and developmental patterns of influence in the orders are traced. In these sources, swearing, drunkenness, fornication, and duelling, as well as attendance at prayers and sermons were perennial concerns and it may be necessary to re-examine the stereotypical image of the Cavalier. The official foundation of the British Army Chaplains' Corps is finally identified and shown to belong in the Royalist army. Many details about attitudes to and the status of women in the King's armies are provided.
A propos de l'auteur: Margaret Griffin, Ph.D. (1997, University of Toronto) has been a sessional lecturer at McMaster University and the University of Guelph, and Project Manager of the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale. She has also written on the British Army Chaplains' Corps.
