Notes

Richard Hooker (1553 or 54-1600) was an Elizabethan cleric, best known for his work, Of the Lawes of Ecclesiastical Politie (Parts 1-4, 1594, part 5, 1597), a philosophical and theological defence of the Elizabethan settlement and the Book of Common Prayer based on it. This study examines Hooker's work on Christian ethics and politics and the government of the English Church within the context of the Royal Supremacy. Hooker was rector of the parishes of Bishopsbourne and Barham, near Canterbury from 1595.
