'In Ronnie Hsia's review of the collection of essays composed in honour of another University of York Professor, John Bossy, edited by Simon Ditchfield and also published as part of the St Andrews Studies in Reformation History series, Hsia exclaimed that 'a good Festschrift is like a successful birthday party: chosen for their friendship and congeniality, the guests/contributors bring their distinct voices to a common encomium of the person being honoured; they remember themes common to the interest of all and add fresh excitement to a retrospective of a life's achievements'. Bossy's contributors were praised for representing such a 'felicitous occasion' and this can quite confidently be extended to the plethora of ex-students and colleagues brought together to honour their mentor and friend, Professor Bill Sheils. By using 'Getting Along?' - emphasis on the '?' - as a category for analysis, the results within this volume have in fact been far more insightful than much other work on ecumenicity.' Reviews in History 'In their effort to honour the work of their mentor, W. J. Sheils, the editors of this Festschrift have managed to bring together insightful essays which all, in their manner, contribute towards the answering of the question about 'getting along' and 'getting on' across confessional divides in early modern England.' History of Women Religious of Britain and Ireland 'So thoughtful, and really very accomplished, is the introduction (forcefully reminding the reader how recent postgraduates still are the future of the profession) and so well assembled are the essays that it is difficult in the space of a short review to do justice to them all.' Catholic Historical Review 'Overall, this is a volume that avoids the dangers of rigidly confessional or nonconfessional views of the period, and instead sustains a persuasive emphasis on the complexities, tensions, and ambiguities of social and cultural interaction between different confessional communities.' Renaissance Quarterly 'Overall ... this is a thoroughly rewarding volume which asks important questions and provides a range of interesting, though not uniform, answers.' Recusant History 'This volume is a welcome contribution to studies of the first two centuries of English Protestantism. ... Overall, this is an admirable tribute to W.H. Shiels, as the essays reflect both his interests as a scholar and the accomplishments of his students.' Sixteenth Century Journal
