The Elizabethan Puritan Movement

Patrick Collinson

Oxford University Press

At a time when the older nonconformists were repudiating the pretensions of the new upstart leadership, the universities, and especially Cambridge, were beginning to supply the rank and file of a new and larger puritan party, young men who were already accustomed to setting themselves against ecclesiastical and academic authority. Not all of this generation would necessarily emphasize what Cartwright emphasized, and comparatively few would follow John Field all the way in spirit and action. But they would have learned almost as a matter of course that the constitution of the Church in which they were to serve was popish rather than reformed, to be regretted if tolerated.

Keywords:   universities, puritan party, academic authority, church reform, church constitution, John Field
