The trial of the seven bishops in 1688 was a signifcant prelude to the Glorious Revolution, as popular support for the bishops led to a widespread welcome for William of Orange's invasion. Their prosecution showed James II at his most intolerant, and threatened the only institution for which most English people felt more loyalty than the monarchy. This book is a fresh interpretation of the events leading to the Glorious Revolution of 1688, showing the significance of James II's prosecution of seven bishops as the signal for the revolution itself.
