Obituary – Patrick Collinson

There are many things I liked about Patrick Collinson.  I always viewed him as a proper historian who was greatly underestimated, not least becasue of his association with Sir John Neale. He did in fact have an original mind, and for me an attractive writing style. If you want a well organised orthodox view of Elizabethan parliaments, you could do a lot worse than read his 1967 text “The Elizabethan Puritan Movement.” You don’t have to agree with it to appreciate it.  There is an appropriate obituary from the Daily Telegraph here .
