  • 10.2. The Breakdown of the Personal Rule of Charles I, c. 1629-1640 III
    • 13. Religious issues and the Short parliament
      • Canons of 1640 (with a Laudian focus) passed
        • BUT many MPs object
      • Sir Benjamin Rudyerd complains
        • Laudianism had effectively pushed people out of their own church
        • that now all who question Laudian changes, are labelled 'puritan' and/or seen as seditious
    • 14. Conclusion
      • Upheavals of 1640s
        • the inheritance of a contested Protestant Identity
    • 15. Speech of Sir Benjamin Rudyerd, 1640 - and the impact of Laudians
      • 'They have brought it to pass that under the name of 'Puritans', all our religion is branded; and, under a few hard words against Jesuits, all Popery is countenanced.
      • 'Whosoever squares his actions [i.e. simply defends his actions] by any rule, either divine or human, he is a Puritan. Who would be governed by the King's laws, he is a Puritan. He that will not do whatever other men would have him do, he is a Puritan.'
    • 16. Areas of confusion
      • Why was Laudianism associated with absolutism?
        • Use of prerogative courts and avoidance of parliament, also associated with Catholic countries, with absolutist rulers
      • Was Laudianism really just Catholicism under a different name?
        • Laud and Charles are not Catholic and try to prevent conversions to Catholicism
      • How does Arminianism fit into this picture?
        • There was great deal more to Laudianism than an 'Arminian' rejection of the doctrine of pre-destination
        • However, Laudianism does introduce greater emphasis on the sacraments and less emphasis on preaching
      • Milton
        • better to see Laudianism as part of a package of ideas and policies
