The Caroline Captivity of the Church

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by discussing the dissolution of the short parliament – a premature end, without achieving any of the constructive aims for which it was organized. Next, it examines the canons of 1640, and notes that the Convocation of 1640 was spread in all 17 canons – three evolved formally within the Upper House and 13 within the Lower House. The chapter also discusses the issues behind the Et Cetera oath by Charles I on 18 May 1640.

Keywords:   short parliament, canons, Convocation, Upper House, Lower House, oath, Charles I
