Publisher's Description


Richard Hooker (1554-1600) is often credited with being the founding father of Anglican moral theology. This book is the first major study to examine in depth the extent to which this claim is justified, and to evaluate the nature of Hooker's contribution to this aspect of Anglican tradition. The study roots Hooker firmly within his own historical context and considers his text principally on its own terms; thus it avoids many of the problems that have bedevilled modern Hooker scholarship, particularly where attempts have been made to 'claim' him for one particular theological tradition over another, or to approach his work primarily with an eye to its continued relevance to contemporary debate within Anglicanism, both of which can lead to significant distortions in the way in which Hooker is read and interpreted. What emerges amounts to a significant re-evaluation of much of the conventional wisdom about Hooker's place within Anglicanism, as well as a range of original insights into the nature, content, and style of his work and its wider significance.

Editorial Reviews


"Alison Joyce's book comes as the first systematic, book-length study of Hooker's moral theology. As such, this volume is a great gift to scholars, and, given its graceful and lucid writing, to the general reading public as well... This volume provides a much-needed entry point into the moral theology of one of the most profound sixteenth-century minds, and the judicious reader will find much to profit from in this thorough and lucidly written survey." --Anglican Theological Review


"This book is a delightful treatment of Hooker himself, and not only of what has been said about him, and this gives it both freshness and authenticity." --Journal of British Studies
