Bernard Capp is Emeritus Professor at the University of Warwick and has been a Fellow of the British Academy since 2005. In October 2018, he will have completed 50 Years of service in the History Department at the University of Warwick, which began with his appointment as a Lecturer in History in 1968. Over the course of his career he has established himself as one of the leading historians of early modern England. His research interests vary widely, spanning social, cultural, gender, religious, political and maritime history. Among his most important publications are When Gossips Meet (2004), England’s Culture Wars (2012), Astrology and the Popular Press (1979), Cromwell’s Navy (1992) and The Fifth Monarchy Men (1971), as well as numerous publications in journals such as Past & PresentThe Seventeenth Century and English Historical Review. His latest book, The Ties That Bind (OUP, 2018) examines the relationships between siblings in early modern England.

He is much admired as a colleague, friend and remarkable scholar of seventeenth-century England and this symposium, comprising invited former students and colleagues, is a fitting tribute to the extraordinary breadth of his research.
