Each of the contributors offers a summation of the state of scholarship within their subject area, linking their own research insights with assessments of future directions within the discipline. In its breadth and depth and diversity, The Oxford Handbook of Modern Irish History offers an authoritative and vibrant portrayal of the history of modern Ireland.

The Puritans on Independence

The Puritans on Independence sheds light on the rise of new claims by puritans to freedom as "independence" several decades earlier than modern scholarship has assumed. This critical edition of long-lost English manuscripts provides access to a set of treatises which are the most significant hitherto unpublished texts for understanding puritan debate over this concept of liberty. Although once mis-catalogued as anti-separatist polemic, they in fact document the presbyterians' clandestine "First Examination" of Henry Jacob's argument for "independent" liberty and ecclesiology. It includes Jacob's "Defence" of his early congregational experiment in response to the "First Examination." The volu...

Gelebte Normen im urbanen Raum

In diesem 5. Band der Reihe Groninger Hanze Studies gehen die Autoren den sozial- und kulturgeschichtlichen Auswertungsmöglichkeiten rechtlicher Quellentexte im Rahmen der mittelalterlichen Stadtgeschichte im Hanseraum nach. Im Mittelpunkt der Betrachtungen steht der Aussagewert normativer Quellen für die innere urbane Entwicklung mittelalterlicher Städte sowie für die Entwicklung von Lebensformen und sozialer Praxis. Zur Beantwortung dieser Fragen werden Stadtrechtstexte, Stadtbücher, Statuten, Ordnungen, Testamente und andere Zeugnisse einbezogen. Der Blick richtet sich damit auf das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen überlieferten Normen einerseits und sozial- und kulturgeschichtlichen ‘Realitäten’ andererseits. Auf diese Weise sollen neue Perspektiven auf rechtliche, soziale und kulturelle Verdichtungsprozesse innerhalb mittelalterlicher Städte in den östlichen Niederlanden, Norddeutschland und Polen eröffnet werden.
