‘In Open Shew to the World’: Mary Stuart’s Armorial Claim to the English Throne and Anglo-French Relations (1559−1561)*

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 00:00:00 GMT

Abstract
The importance of symbolic imagery in the construction of authority is well known. In combination with other titles of pretence, the public display of heraldry could provoke severe conflicts. As a result, early modern rulers were very anxious to safeguard the exclusivity of their armorial bearings, which were increasingly valued as material embodiments of sovereign power. Armorial claim-making affected the essence of rule and, accordingly, performed an alternative kingship. One of the most telling examples is the subversive use of the arms of England by Mary, Queen of Scots and her husband François (II) of France. Between 1559 and 1561, their ‘public’ assumption of the English royal style and arms in ritual and daily politics unleashed a diplomatic controversy that stood in a long tradition of symbolic rivalry and heraldic appropriation. Yet, as this article argues, Mary’s ‘usurpation’ presented a rather ambiguous claim to the Tudor throne, thereby maximising its political potential. In fact, the controversy exposed a pre-existing tension between dynastic partitioning and indivisible authority. To defend their view on the matter, the contesting parties developed a different argumentation about the historical origins of regal arms and their evolution from signs of mere lineage to marks of undisputed sovereignty. As such, this heraldic controversy was one of the main causes that brought France and the Elizabethan state to the brink of war.



Negotiating Identity: Israel, Apartheid, and the United Nations, 1949–1952*

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 00:00:00 GMT

Abstract
Orthodox historiographies on Israel’s early policies in ‘black’ Africa and its relations with ‘white’ South Africa commonly, if disjointedly, assert that the state’s Jewish identity had played, in the early 1960s, a key role in Israel’s participation in the international ‘struggle against apartheid’. Revisiting this assertion, I examine Israel’s involvement in early United Nations debates on South Africa’s race policies. I trace the making of Israel’s position on South Africa’s treatment of persons of Indian origins in preparation for the 1950 General Assembly; present Israel’s voting praxis in that session; and demonstrate the persistence of both position and praxis in the 1952 Assembly session where apartheid first appeared on the UN agenda. Against the grain of existing accounts, I argue first that, on Africa, Israel’s multilateral diplomacy preceded its bilateral diplomacy; Israel’s encounter with Africa began not in the early 1960s but with its 1949 UN admission, compelling its envoys to vote and reflect on African and colonial questions, including apartheid. Secondly, I demonstrate that Israel approached apartheid with equivocation; at the UN, its diplomats devised and acted on a formula allowing them, in their words, ‘to have our cake and eat it’—even if, on the whole, Israel’s diplomatic praxis was far more progressive than that of Western states. Thirdly, I demonstrate how Jewish identity, constructed through the prism of Israel’s foundational ideology, affected such equivocation: it defined Israel’s dilemma on apartheid but, at the same time, also offered a route out of that conundrum. Finally, I illustrate that the elasticity of Jewish identity displayed by Israel’s envoys drew on sensibilities that were often formed in South Africa itself by their own previous encounters with racially-managed society and, later, with apartheid.

Kings and Kingship in the Writings of Bede*

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 00:00:00 GMT

Abstract
This article argues that the Anglo-Saxon intellectual Bede (d. 735) saw kingship as a ‘secular’ office. Previous historiography has tended to rely upon the evidence of Bede’s historical works, which, for reasons of genre and audience, do not accurately represent his attitudes to rulership; here, his exegesis and theology are foregrounded. Bede’s theological writings describe both Christ and Satan as kings, suggesting a morally neutral view of kingship. Biblical texts which would have allowed him to comment upon the behaviour of contemporary kings received purely spiritual interpretations in Bede’s works, which display little interest in general in the ideology of ministerial kingship. The Anglo-Saxon did believe good Christians could be kings and use their power for the benefit of the Church, but this was primarily because of the very ‘secularity’ of kingship, an institution which veered between the elect and reprobate and of which the devout should take advantage when they could. But Bede did not expect these Christian kings to spread the faith at the point of a sword or to transform the power of rulership into a force for ecclesiastical reform. Influenced by Augustinian ideas, contemporary events and the attitudes to earthly monarchy emerging from early medieval Rome, Bede maintained a basic conviction that worldly power belonged to a secular sphere. While Robert Markus influentially suggested that the transition between Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages saw the ‘de-secularisation’ of Europe, the evidence of Bede suggests the continuation of Christian secularism into the eighth century.
