Summary
"Looks at the political uses of the biblical kings and the Old Testament in the Renaissance ... the work explores the scriptural ambivalence to and suspicion of monarchy and constitutes a reception history of the biblical texts on kingship across the seventeenth century; the study also provides an account of the biblical idiom of politics in the era"--From author's University of York web page
