Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. The reign of James VI (1567-1625) remains one of the most enigmatic in Scottish history. There are long periods within it which resemble black-holes in our knowledge. This study is a concerted attempt by a group of ten scholars of the reign, drawn from three different disciplines, to shed light on its politics and government, viewed through a series of perspectives: they include the royal court, which is analysed separately though its literature, architecture and ceremony; noble factionalism; relations with England, James VI s paymaster; a revised model of tensions between church and state; and the relationship of the government with various localities including the Highlands, Borders and the South-west, a future locus of opposition to Charles I. It analyses James as literary author, correspondent, husband and universal king . It has a full introduction, extensive notes on further reading and an exhaustive index. The book offers a series of revisions to accepted views of the reign, dismissing both Melvillianism and laissez-faire monarchy as useful tools. It sees the centre of politics in the interaction between an expanded and increasingly expensive royal court and a phenomenal growth of the state, based on a huge increase in legislation and the business of the Privy Council.

It analyses James as literary author, correspondent, husband and 'universal king'. It has a full introduction, extensive notes on further reading and an exhaustive index. The book offers a series of revisions to accepted views of the reign, dismissing both Melvillianism and 'laissez-faire monarchy' as useful tools. It sees the centre of politics in the interaction between an expanded and increasingly expensive royal court and a phenomenal growth of the state, based on a huge increase in legislation and the business of the Privy Council.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The History of Scotland, During the Reigns of Queen Mary, and of King James Vi; Till His Accession to the Crown of England, Vol. 3 of 3: With a Review of the Scottish History Previous to That Period; And an Appendix, Containing Original Papers Henderson was twice examined, first at Falkland before the privy council in August, and next at Edinburgh before the par liament in November. Not to mention some lesser variations between these depositions, we shall point out two which are remarkable. In his first deposition, Mr. Henderson relates the most material circumstance of the whole in these words: Mr. Ruthven pulled out the deponent s dagger, and held the same to His Majesty s breast, saying, Remember you of my father s mur der; you shall now die for it; and pointing to his Highness s heart with the dagger, the deponent threw the same out of Mr. Ruthven s hands, and swore that as God should judge his soul, that if Mr. Ruthven had retained the dagger in his hand the space a man may go six steps, he would have stricken the King to the hilts with it. Disc. 52. But at his second examina tion be varied from this in two material circumstances. First, the words he at that time put in Mr. Ruthven s month while he held the dagger at the King s breast are, Sir, you must be my prisoner; remember on my father s death. Secondly, when he threatened him with death, it was only to deter him from making any noise, Hold your tongue, or by Christ you shall die. 2. In his first deposition, the words of Mr. Ruthven, when he returned to the chamber where he had left the King, are, There is no remedy, by God you must die. But in his second deposition, By God there is no remedy, and offered to bind his Majesty s hands. Crom. 51. The material words you must die are omitted. The first deposition seems plainly to intimate that it was Ruth ven s intention to murder the King. The second would lead us to conclude that he had no other design than to detain him as a prisoner.
