Early glossy Catholics, Royalists, and Cosmopolitans considers how the marginalized standpoint of 16th-century English Catholic exiles and 17th-century English royalist exiles helped to generate a sort of cosmopolitanism that was once rooted in modern non secular and nationwide identities but in addition transcended these identities.
Author Brian C. Lockey argues that English discourses of nationhood have been in dialog with opposing 'cosmopolitan' views, one who sought to domesticate and maintain the rising English nationalism and imperialism and one other that challenged English nationhood from the viewpoint of these Englishmen who seen the dominion as one province in the better transnational Christian commonwealth.
Lockey illustrates how the latter cosmopolitan viewpoint, produced inside groups of exiled English topics, separated in time through part a century, encouraged fiction writers corresponding to Sir Philip Sidney, Edmund Spenser, Anthony Munday, Sir John Harington, John Milton, and Aphra Behn. finally, he exhibits that early smooth cosmopolitans critiqued the rising discourse of English nationhood from a standard non secular and political point of view, while their writings ultimately gave upward thrust to later secular Enlightenment varieties of cosmopolitanism.
