Religious Refugees in the Early Modern World: An Alternative History of the Reformation / Nicholas Terpstra
Review Date:8 Sep 2016
Exile has long been central to our understanding of certain Early Modern topics. The flight of English Protestants, and then Catholics, to the Continent in the 16th century, or the exodus of Huguenots (many to England and Ireland) after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in the 17th, are perhaps the best known examples to UK audiences.

This is an extremely ambitious, thought-provoking, challenging and inspiring book.

Francis Bacon’s unfinished utopian novel The New Atlantis is often invoked in scholarship about early modern scientific projects.
