内容説明

For those interested in the causes of the breakdown that led to civil war and revolution in mid-seventeenth-century England, the volumes of Proceedings in the Opening Session of the Long Parliament are a good place to begin. The debates in this session focus on the accumulated problems -- political, social, economic, and religious -- that were the legacy of Charles I's years of personal rule. During the almost seven months between the dissolution of the Short Parliament in April 1640 and the first session of what came to be called the Long Parliament in November 1640, the King, his advisors, and army commanders were absorbed with the financial and military problems of the Scottish army camped in the north of England. In the Irish parliament in Dublin, reaction against the King's close friend the Earl of Strafford, the Deputy Lieutenant of Ireland, was beginning to crystalize. Throughout the kingdom, religious unrest continued. All of these elements came to play in the Long Parliament. Volume 1 of the House of Commons debate covers the opening session from 3 November through 19 December 1640. This volume plus Volume 2 (December 21,1640 through March 20, 1641) provide the debates leading up to the beginning of the impeachment trial of the Earl of Strafford for High Treason.

For those interested in the causes of the breakdown that lead to civil war in mid-seventeenth-century England, the volumes or Proceedings in the Opening Session of the Long Parliament are a good place to begin. The debates in this session focus on the accumulated problems -- political, social, and religious -- that were the legacy of the years of personal rule of Charles I. During the almost seven months between the dissolution of the Short Parliament in April 1640 and the first session of what came to be called the Long Parliament in November 1640, the King, his advisors, and army commanders were absorbed with the financial and military problems of the Scottish army camped in the north of England. In the Irish parliament in Dublin, reaction against Thomas Wentworth, soon to become the Earl of Strafford, was beginning to crystallize. Throughout the kingdom, religious unrest continued, All of these elements came into play in the Long Parliament. Volume 2 of the House of Commons debates 21 December 21,1640 through March 20, 1641) continues the coverage begun in Volume 1 (November 3 through December 19, 1640), providing the debates that lead up to the beginning of the impeachment trial of the Earl of Strafford for High Treason.

v. 4 ISBN 9781580461122

内容説明

This volume contains the debates on the passage of the Act of Continuance that assured the parliament that it would not be adjourned, prorogued, or dissolved in conjunction with the Strafford business. On May 10th that act was passed by royal commission, as was the act of attainder against the Earl of Strafford, thus concluding with his impeachment trial and assuring the continuance of parliament. Strafford was beheaded on May 12th and the subsidy bill, providing further relief for the King's army, passed into law on the 13th. On May 11th, in between the passage of the attainder and the execution of Strafford, the Scottish treaty passed the Upper House. Debate on the treaty began in the lower House immediately and by June most of the articles had been hammered out. The conclusion and the passage of the treaty will be published in Volume V. Also contained in Volume IV are the materials relating to a plot to gain control of a demoralized army and to attempt a rescue of Strafford. The extent of the "army plot" has to a certain extent remained a question in the minds of historians. The accounts in Volume IV will shed new light on this puzzling matter.

内容説明

Volume 5 of Proceedings in the Opening Session of the Long Parliament/> covers the period from 7 June through 17 July 1641 and is the penultimate volume of text in the edition. Volume 6 will contain the proceedings from 19 July to the recess on 9 September 1641. The last volume of the edition will contain the comprehensive index and various appendixes and tables. In the summer months of 1641 as parliamentarians prepared for a recess and reunions with families from whom they had been long separated, their accomplishments were apparent: important bills had been passed, impeachments were drafted, Strafford was beheaded and peace with Scotland was on the verge of becoming a reality. Much of the business introduced in the course of the daily meetings since the convening of parliament in November 1640 was touched upon in the last months of summer before the adjournment in September. The effort to complete what was earlier begun is apparent in the topics of debate listed in the Orders of Business for each day. The finalizing of the Act of Pacification with Scotland was the work of these months. The disbanding of troops on both sides, the organizing of the disposition of their weapons, and the settling of the complicated financial arrangements relating to almost all aspects of the peace were a major part of the work described in this volume and continued in volume 6.

v. 6 ISBN 9781580462181

内容説明

This last volume of Proceedings in the Opening Session of the Long Parliament covers the period from 19 July through 9 September 1641. Both houses were by now growing thin as weary lords and commoners began to leave London for families in the countryside, knowing they would be back in the city by October. The king left for Edinburgh in August, not to return until autumn. In closing up for the recess the parliamentary body lost nothing of the work started, even while negotiating the final arrangements for peace with Scotland. The reader is again struck by the committee structure and the means for handling personal and somewhat private naturalization bills while at the same time keeping on track the major public bills regarding episcopacy and the nature of the Council and courts.
