Spotlight on Jacqueline Rose
January 25, 2013 Leave a comment
Dr Jacqueline Rose researches and teaches early modern British history, with a focus on political and religious ideas and relationships. She came to St Andrews in autumn 2011 after a period of study and teaching at Cambridge, where she held a college lectureship during and after her Ph.D.
Jacqueline has published articles in The Historical Journal, English Historical Review, Historical Research, and the Journal of Ecclesiastical History as well as contributing to edited collections on early modern religious history such as The Later Stuart Church and the History of Anglicanism.
Jacqueline’s current major project is a book called Kingship and Counsel in Early Modern England, 1509-1688, which investigates the nature of kingship and political power across a broad sweep of sixteenth and seventeenth century history. In association with this she is also convening a research group to consider the politics of counsel in other countries and periods. A very successful workshop was held on this in St Andrews in October 2012; a website will be coming soon – watch this space!
Jacqueline’s first book, Godly Kingship in Restoration England: The Politics of the Royal Supremacy, 1660-1688 was published by Cambridge University Press in July 2011. Through analysing the monarch’s position as supreme governor of the Church of England, it explores debates about the authority of crown, parliament, common law, and the Church, considers emerging concepts of toleration, and challenges conventional assumptions about the political and religious alignments of the period. Setting the whole in a history of developments since the 1530s, it demonstrates the long-term dynamics of Reformation politics and reminds intellectual historians of the poverty of a secular paradigm for understanding the ideas of the period. Godly Kingship won the Royal Historical Society’s Whitfield Prize in 2011.
Jacqueline teaches an honours module on The Politics of Monarchy in Tudor and Stuart England, and on several of the M.Litt programmes, particularly in Reformation Studies and Early Modern History. She also contributes to sub-honours courses on The Early Modern Western World; Scotland, Britain, and Empire, 1500-2000; and History as a Discipline.
