War and Commonwealth in Mid-Tudor England.

Lowe, Ben. "War and Commonwealth in Mid-Tudor England." Sixteenth Century Journal 21 (1990), pp. 171-191. ISSN 0361-0160


Lowe cites Gower's comments on the war in CA 3 and VC 3 and 7 (pp. 175-77) in his discussion of fourteenth-century precedents for the humanist and post-Reformation critique of the notion of a "just war" and the advocacy of peace as most beneficial to the commonwealth.
