Traducido por Lilia Mosconi

El tema de este libro es la crisis general que aquej al per odo "moderno temprano" de la historia, crisis que no fue s lo pol tica y econ mica, sino tambi n social e intelectual, y que no se limit a un solo pa s sino que se hizo sentir en toda Europa. Seg n el autor, la crisis que a mediados del siglo XVII se produjo en el gobierno, en la sociedad y en las ideas, tanto en la Europa continental como en Inglaterra, constituye el crisol de los sucesos revolucionarios de ese siglo. A trav s del estudio de la caza de brujas ("un tema que debe enfrentar quienquiera sienta el impulso de poner demasiado nfasis en la modernidad de aquel per odo"), a trav s de la cr tica de la interpretaci n weberiana de la relaci n entre calvinismo y capitalismo ("si los historiadores sociol gicos prodigaran una mirada general al calvinismo y examinaran el capitalismo en general, creo que se ver an obligados a modificar esta f rmula apasionante pero simple que Weber formul "), y por medio del retrato de "tres extranjeros" -Samuel Hartlib, John Dury y Comenio-, tres hombres que "por su experiencia y sus ideas pertenec an a esa Internacional europea, y que pasaron a ser los fil sofos de la revoluci n puritana inglesa en su combinaci n de reacci n intelectual y novedosa utop a social," o dedicando un cap tulo al estudio de "los or genes religiosos de la Ilustraci n," Hugh Trevor-Roper descubre nuevos caminos para la comprensi n de un momento seminal de la historia de Occidente: el momento en que se sentaron las bases institucionales e intelectuales de la comprensi n moderna de la libertad, de la que somos herederos y beneficiarios.

Author notes provided by Syndetics

Hugh Redwald Trevor-Roper was born at Glanton, England on January 15, 1914. He studied modern history at Christ Church, Oxford, and soon afterwards he published a study of Archbishop Laud. During the World War II, he worked in British intelligence. In 1945, he was assigned by his superiors to write a report on the death of Hitler, which became The Last Days of Hitler. After the war, he taught history at Christ Church, where he was made Regius Professor of Modern History from 1957 to 1980. In 1979, Margaret Thatcher made Trevor-Roper a life peer as Lord Dacre of Glanton. He was then Master of Peterhouse College, Cambridge from 1980 until he retired in 1987.

Trevor-Roper's scholarly reputation suffered in April 1983 when he authenticated about 60 volumes said to be Hitler's diaries, which turned out to be falsified. His other works included The Rise of Christian Europe, The European Witch Craze of the 16th and 17th Centuries, From Counter Reformation to Glorious Revolution, and The Philby Affair. He died on January 26, 2003 at the age of 89.
