Summary
'The Book of Sports' was the royal declaration which sanctioned popular participation in traditional pastimes after church attendance on Sunday. It was denounced by a vociferous opposition who viewed recreation on the Sabbath as the devil's work. Alistair Dougall takes a fresh look at the events surrounding the re-publication of 'The Book of Sports' in 1633 and reassesses the role of Charles I himself in the controversy
