(p.87) 3 Arminianism
The Caroline Captivity of the Church

Julian Davies

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses that, for revisionist historiography, religion was a factor in the Civil War not because of the rise of Puritanism, but because of the rise of Arminianism, thus offering a convenient explanation for the crisis of the 1640s. It explains that this revisionism is a salutary corrective to traditional historiography in that it has helped to restore religious values to one's perception of the past, has served to reinterpret Puritanism, and has aided the unmasking of the remarkable institution that was the Jacobean Church. The chapter discusses the very eclectic doctrinal position of Laud, who was indicted of Arminianism, and examines the Brownist beliefs that Laud isolated for condemnation. It also discusses the importance of the Montagu case and Charles I's pursuit of peace for the Church.
