The Evolving Reputation of Richard Hooker

Michael Brydon

Oxford University Press

The publication of the Polity was initially a damp squib, but the Reformed hostility of the writer of the Christian Letter combined with a Catholic desire to see Hooker as representative of the English Church helped define a distinctive religious position for him. William Covell’s defence of Hooker took the opportunity to remould him further in support of a growing distaste for the earlier style of the English reformation. Whilst there was still a desire to claim Hooker as a Reformed figure, he was increasingly favoured by avant-garde churchmen.
