By Gary W, Mr Jenkins

John Jewel (1522–1571) has lengthy been considered as one of many key figures within the shaping of the Anglican Church. A Marian exile, he again to England upon the accession of Elizabeth I, and was once appointed bishop of Salisbury in 1560 and wrote his well-known Apologia Ecclesiae Anglicanae years later.

The newest monographs on Jewel, now over 40 years outdated, concentration principally on his theology, casting him as deft student, adept humanist, precursor to Hooker, arbiter of Anglican id and seminal brain within the formation of Anglicanism. but in mild of recent learn it's transparent that a lot of this doesn't face up to nearer exam. during this paintings, Gary Jenkins argues that, faraway from serving because the of a good Anglican id, Jewel's genuine contribution relates to the genesis of its divided and schizophrenic nature. Drawing on a number of assets and scholarship, he paints an image now not of a theologian and humanist, yet an orator and rhetorician, who over and over breached the foundations of good judgment and the canons of Renaissance humanism in order to declare polemical victory over his traditionalist rivals reminiscent of Thomas Harding.

By taking such an iconoclastic method of Jewel, this paintings not just bargains an intensive reinterpretation of the fellow, yet of the Church he did a lot to form. It presents a shiny perception into the reason and ends of Jewel with appreciate to what he observed the Church of britain lower than the Elizabethan cost to be, in addition to into the unintentional outcomes of his paintings. In so doing, it demonstrates how he used his Patristic assets, usually uncritically and faultily, as foils opposed to his theological interlocutors, and with out the least goal of making a coherent theological system.
