Walter Raleghs History of the World and the Historical Culture of the Late Renaissance
He has come to be regarded as a gallant courtier, brave soldier, swashbuckling privateer, and adventurous explorer who disobeyed James I and lost his head for having done so.
Of course, Ralegh was also a man of learning, a scholar and historian who authored the 1,folio History of the World—a fact sometimes overlooked when set against his long list of impressive and rather more exciting accomplishments. In undertaking his universal history from Creation to BC, Ralegh was also seeking to understand the role providence played in the world. At the same time, it is an important contribution to our understanding of Renaissance historical studies that intellectual and political historians will equally ind useful.
During the second half of the sixteenth century, France was set on ire by civil wars and manipulated by complex political plots and international power struggles. In this turbulent context, and more specii- cally within the Calvinist movement, there arose a heated discussion about the intricate political-religious and civil problem of reconciling obedience to the lawful sovereign and loyalty to God.
