Anti-Calvinists the rise of English Arminianism, c. 1590-1640

Anti-Calvinists trace the rise of Arminianism from Elizabethan times, and argue that the subsequent proscription of Calvinism in the 1620s was a major cause of the civil war that broke out in 1642. As Arminianism triumphed under Charles I, it rekindled Puritan opposition to the established church. The theological dispute between Arminianism and Calvinism--Arminianism promoting the role of the sacraments and the grace they conferred, and Calvinism focusing on the grace of predestination--assumed greater significance as a struggle for control of the church itself. A provocative reinterpretation of the divisions of the Church of England, this work throws new light on the origins of the civil war and the role played by religious rivalry.
