This book shows King James VI and I, king of Scotland and England, in an unaccustomed light. Long regarded as inept, pedantic, and whimsical, James is shown here as an astute and far-sighted statesman whose reign was focused on achieving a permanent union between his two kingdoms and a peaceful and stable community of nations throughout Europe.

Review:

'... weightily documented and authoritative in style ... it should definitively quash the old idea that James was nothing more than an ineffectual pedant who fancied himself a theologian.' Church Times

'... scholars will be grateful to Patterson (and Cambridge University Press) for the comprehensiveness of this work ... this is [a] book which will define its particular subject for a long time'. The Virginia Quarterly Review

'Patterson's ... prose is so lucid and his narrative so clear that general readers ... will enjoy and learn much from this book.' The American Oxonian

'... meticulously documented and well written. It fills a significant void in the re-evaluation of James's reign.' Renaissance Quarterly

'... Patterson writes lucidly, treats other historians with appropriate irenicism, and should succeed in pushing Jacobean ecumenism from the margins into the mainstream of current historiography.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History

'This important volume is the culmination of many years' work on King James and his ecumenical commitments.' English Historical Review

' ... elegant and important'. The Downside Review

' ... meticulous, profoundly-researched'. Oxford Academic Journals

Book Description:

Book Description Cambridge University Press November 2000, 2000. Paper Back. Condition: New. The King who gave us the great English Bible turns out to be more than just a name, more than just the ''KJV'' stamped on the cover. He was not (as the conventional historical view up till now has implied) ''inept, pedantic, and whimsical,'' but a model of diplomacy and farsighted ecumenism in an age and in a Europe about to be torn apart by the Thirty Years War as well as a pious theologian of no mean ability. Early in his reign he called for an Ecumenical Council bringing together all of Christendom, at which the Church of Rome would preside once it was ''purged of ill humours'' and willing to ''reform their errors.'' He sought closer relations with Calvinist and Lutheran branches of the Reformation, as well as with the Orthodox Church (an entire chapter of this book recounts King James' correspondence with Orthodox patriarchs and scholars, and his efforts with no proselytizing intent to enable young Greek students to be educated in England). W.B. Patterson has given us a gift of detailed scholarship that reveals a real hero in the otherwise tortured relations between the nations and confessions of Christendom. Seller Inventory # 17284
