Research Interests

Email: kschultz01@qub.ac.uk

 

My research interests are in the political, religious, and intellectual history of seventeenth-century Britain and continental Europe. The majority of my past and present work focuses on theories of political resistance within the Calvinist and Lutheran traditions and the employment of those theories in the seventeenth and eighteenth-century Atlantic world. 

Research Statement

I am a final-year PhD student funded by the European Research Council. My dissertation is entitled 'Political thought and Protestant intellectual culture in the Scottish Revolution, 1638-1651.' It examines how Catholic scholastic analyses of legal categories and Protestant theories of resistance combined to create a language of political legitimacy in civil-war Scotland. It also reasserts the importance of ecclesiological debates (such as the compatibility of forms of civil and church government) in early modern political thought. The purpose of my dissertation is to reassess the position of both Catholicism and Calvinism in the development of the modern liberal state (and ideas about popular sovereignty and limited government) by focusing on the theological problems at the heart of the Covenanters' cause. While most accounts of the modern state focus on secularization and the gradual distancing of the church from the state, I contend that the church played a significant role (rather than a marginal one) in the development of European liberalism.
