This Friday a symposium on the late Professor Patrick Collinson and his historical legacy will be held at Trinity College in Cambridge.
Patrick Collinson was Regius Professor of Modern History at the University of Cambridge and by the time of his death he had become one of Britain’s foremost early modern historians. His first major monograph, published as The Elizabethan Puritan Movement (1967), transformed the way historians conceived the nature and role of Puritanism. His final publication, Richard Bancroft and Elizabethan Anti-Puritanism (Cambridge University Press, 2013) will be launched after Friday’s symposium.
Later this month Patrick Collinson’s final book for Manchester University Press, This England: Essays on the English nation and Commonwealth in the sixteenth century, will be published for the first time in paperback.
There’s also an extended review of Collinson’s autobiography, The History of a History Man available here.
