Charitable Hatred offers a challenging new perspective on religious tolerance and intolerance in early modern England Setting aside traditional models charting a linear progress from persecution to toleration, it emphasizes instead the complex interplay between these two impulses in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Walsham's thematic organization of the study is wonderfully illuminating as is her insistence on the dialectical relationship between tolerance and persecution. She has a penchant for the long sentence but writes them far more eloquently than most scholars. The book often synthesizes previous historical work-- I was surprised by how often the footnotes refer to scholarship rather than primary sources. The depth of her insight on the subject generally compensates for this.

This was not a fast read. I am not a fan of the history of ideas, this was so dry and not compelling.
