A CFP was issued last year about a volume being put together that will examine
the relationship between classical and biblical ideas in Great Britain and
Western Europe in the early modern period (c1536-1702).

For various reasons some authors had to pull out, and we have lost contact with
others whose email has apparantly changed, and we were not given new contact
details.
