Chapter Summary

Following the accession of Elizabeth in 1558 and the return home of the exiles, an extensive correspondence flourished between England and Zurich which was to last for more than a generation. This book explores in depth the alien mentalité of sixteenth-century politico-religious discourse and to seek to avoid as far as possible the anachronism of imposing the categories of Enlightenment or post-Enlightenment methodological presuppositions on this early modern mode of discourse. The aim is to read and interpret a selection of primary texts of Bullinger’s and Vermigli’s political theology with a view to disclosing so far as possible their own deep presuppositions and distinctive modes of argument, on their own terms and critical criteria, and thus with the highest degree of respect for their alien character.

Keywords: England; Tudor political theology; Zurich
