Youth and Authority

Paul Griffiths

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the religious commitment and recreation of youth in Tudor and Stuart England. It explores the issues of peer association, formative experiences, conformity and opposition from a youthful perspective. It highlights the role of the Church in shaping the time and manners of youth, analyses the youth's involvement in divine service, and their visits to alehouses in order to trace the expressions of identities which communicated the difference of the ages in hairstyles, dress, and entertainment.

Keywords:   youth, religious commitment, youth recreation, formative experience, Church, youth identity
