Example text

Few Englishmen would have quarrelled with that in 1625, or for quite a long time after. This is not to suggest that James always saw eye to eye with parliament and the common lawyers in constitutional matters. The common law enjoyed an extraordinary prestige, even veneration, in England. Lawyers regularly outnumbered merchants in early Stuart parliaments, but the proportion of MPs who had had a smattering of a legal education was much higher—well over half the House in the Long Parliament. Very many of the wealthy gentry sent their sons to one of the Inns of Court for a year or two, not to become professional barristers but to acquire a bit of metropolitan polish, form useful friendships, and (optimistically) to acquire enough legal lore to be useful to them as landowners and JPs.

8 Such conflicts of principle might lead to serious trouble under a more stiff-necked and less astute monarch, but James forbore from pressing them too far. Most of his substantial disputes with parliament, including those over the impositions in 1610 and 1614 and over foreign policy in the early 1620s, were conducted without raising really disturbing questions of constitutional theory. 9 Yet if neither clashes of ideology nor conflicts of class interest carried in them the seeds of civil war, there was a more disturbing symptom of malaise in the body politic in the emergence under James of the terms ‘Court’ and 8 J.

Yet though such anti-Calvinists were a small and disfavoured minority at that time, there was a direct continuity between them and the school of divines that Charles I was to promote. James I shared Elizabeth’s dislike of public disputation over the mysteries of the divine decrees, though unlike her he was keenly interested in theology and seriously knowledgeable about it. Soon after his accession he received a petition from a sizeable group of puritan ministers, calling for a number of modest reforms in the practices of the church.
