June 2009 – Recent assembly research. Dr Chad Van Dixhoorn presented two papers on the Westminster Assembly this spring:
‘The strange silence of prolocutor Twisse: Predestination and politics at the Westminster assembly (1643-1652)’, a paper given at the Religion in the British Isles Graduate Seminar in Oxford on 7 April 2009. And ‘Politics and religion in the Westminster assembly and the ‘grand debate’, a conference paper at the Insular Christianity (1400-1700) colloquium in Dublin on 3 June 2009.
The first of these papers is to be published in Seventeenth-Century Journal. The second is to be developed as a chapter in a published volume of conference proceedings.
