Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon, was the pre-eminent historian of the English Civil War, and premier adviser to both Charles I and Charles II. A friend of Ben Jonson, critic of Thomas Hobbes, key figure of the so-called Great Tew Circle, Clarendon is an important literary as well as political figure, whose contribution has been remarkably neglected. The quatercentenary of Clarendon's birth in 1609 provides an opportunity to reassess Clarendon's importance and legacy and to launch a project to create a major new edition of Clarendon's writings. The conference will take place in the Vere Harmsworth library in the American Rothermere Institute in Oxford on Friday 6th March.
