Abstract

Charles I and his clerical supporters are often said to have been wary of print and public discussion, only entering the public sphere reluctantly and to comparatively little effect during the political crisis of 1642. This article challenges such views by focusing on the neglected role of official forms of print such as proclamations, declarations, and state prayers and their promulgation in the nation's churches. It traces the ways in which the king utilized the network of parish clergy to broadcast his message and mobilize support during the Scottish crisis of 1639–40 and again in the ‘paper war’ of 1642. The article argues that traditional forms of printed address retained their potency and influence despite the proliferation of polemical pamphlets and newsbooks. The significance of these mobilizations is demonstrated by the profound disquiet they caused among the king's Covenanter and parliamentarian opponents as well as the ‘good effects’ they had in generating support for the royalist cause.

Preaching before Charles in Durham Cathedral on 5 May, Morton, referred to the 27 Feb. proclamation as evidence of Charles's clemency which, he claimed, would be ‘an astonishment to posterity’ (p. 41). Charles had, however, intervened to change Morton's sermon text before it was printed, specifically removing claims that Calvin never authorized resistance to higher powers: TNA, SP16/437/56.

34 Larkin and Hughes, eds., Proclamations, ii, pp. 726–8. Charles had previously declared recalcitrant Covenanters to be ‘open rebels and traitors’ in a proclamation issued in Scotland in Apr. 1639, but ‘printed and published all over England’. This was a response to the Remonstrance, and seems to have been the target for an act passed by the Scottish parliament in June 1640 against ‘unlawful and unjust proclamations’. The suppression of such anti-Covenanter print in England and Ireland was one of the demands made by Scottish commissioners at the Treaty of London: Calendar of state papers, domestic, 1639, pp. 40–1, 65, 77–81; [Charles I], To our lovits, heraulds, maissers, messengers, pursuivants and sheriffs (1639); Laing, ed., Baillie, i, pp. 202, 297, 300; A remonstrance concerning the present troubles (Edinburgh, 1640), pp. 33–9; Lords Journal (LJ), iv, p. 159; BL, Harleian MS 6424, fos. 17v–18; John Raithby, ed., Statutes of the realm (11 vols. in 12, London, 1963), v, p. 123.
