History of England from the Accession of James II – (Volume 3, Chapter 14)

by Thomas Babington Macaulay

This is volume 3 chapter 14 of a series of books written by the Baron Macaulay (1800-1959 in the 19th century. It starts with a brief resume of the history of England up until the Stuart kings and then starts to delve into a little more detail. Macaulay is primarily fascinated by ending of any claim to divine right of kings and the growing role of Parliament in the governing of the country. He sees the accession of William and Mary (Dutch, Protestant royalty) to the British throne as a key moment in the history of the British Isles. This is a book delightful for the literary gifts of the author and intriguing for his view of 18th century English and world politics. (Jim Mowatt)This volume covers various 17th century events including a military campaign in Ireland and the Church of England oath-swearing controversy, in which some clergymen refused to swear an oath to King William and Queen Mary required by the crown (Karen Merline)
