Absolutism from Below? The Remarkable History of Argenis : CMEMS / PMRG Public Lecture Other events...
Listed in catalogues of aristocratic, burgher and parish libraries, translated by Martin Opitz and Ben Jonson, and quoted by Cardinal Richelieu and Thomas Hobbes, the Latin novel Argenis by John Barclay ranked among the bestselling books in 17th–18th century Europe. Though officially marketed as a romance, the text bore a significant political message and became more than passing entertainment. Through reference to the history of Argenis, this paper contributes to the ongoing debate on how early modern political ideas were disseminated to a wider public.
Speaker(s) Jaroslav Miller is Associate Professor of History at Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic. He is currently a Go8 Fellow with CMEMS at UWA.
