Absolutism and Constitutionalism

This week we will look at the two models of government that developed in the Early Modern period: Absolutism and Constitutionalism. (Chapter 15 of Cole and lab documents.) Discuss the origins of these systems and the unique characteristics of these theories of government. You should utilize some the primary source material in this week’s lab assignment in addition to the readings in the Cole text to explain these historical developments. Focus on the key changes in Britain and France that brought about these governmental models. What role did religion continue to play in the political arena? Which model, constitutionalism or absolutism, appears to have influenced the rest of Europe in this period? How did war and international conflict influence these changes?Lab VI readings to be used as sourcesConstitutionalism vs. AbsolutismAbsolutismJames I & VI (b.1566, r. 1566 {Scotland), r. {England} 1603 -1625): A Trew Law of Free Monarchies http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/james1-trew2.htmlAn exhibit on James at Glasgow University:http://special.lib.gla.ac.uk/exhibns/month/sep2003.htmlBishop Jacques Bossuet: Political Treatise on Kingshiphttp://history.hanover.edu/texts/bossuet.htmlDuc de Saint-Simon: The Court of Louis XIVhttp://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/17stsimon.htmlRevocation of the Edict of Nantes, October 22, 1685http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/1685revocation.htmlConstitutionalismPetition of Right (1628)http://odur.let.rug.nl/~usa/D/1601-1650/england/por.htmCommonwealth Instrument of Government, 1653http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/1653intrumentgovt.htmlJohn Locke: Two Treatises of Government, 1690http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/1690locke-sel.htmlThe Bill of Rights, 1689http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/1689billofrights.html
