Revolutionary England: a festschrift for Dr Clive Holmes

13 February 2017

Revolutionary England, c. 1630-c. 1660: Essays for Clive Holmes is a collection of essays designed to pay tribute to the scholarly career of one of Oxford's leading early modern historians. Now an Emeritus Fellow of LMH, Clive was Fellow and Tutor in History from 1986 to 2011. Fifty years since his name first appeared in print, Revolutionary England focuses on the mid-seventeenth-century period of upheaval that has been at the centre of Clive's unusually wide-ranging historical interests. Most of the contributors are drawn from the ranks of Clive's former graduate students, though one of the co-editors, Grant Tapsell, was an undergraduate student of Clive's at LMH, and is now his successor as Fellow and Tutor in History. As Dr Tapsell notes, 'Clive was for twenty-five years one of the most inspirational college tutors in Oxford, and generations of LMH students benefitted from his boundless enthusiasm and unstinting support. All of the contributors to Revolutionary England wanted to pay tribute to someone who has offered a wonderful example of the way that scholarship flourishes alongside committed teaching.' Most of the essays were originally presented as papers at Clive's memorable retirement conference at LMH in 2011.
