Editorial Reviews

... Evidence of bright new scholarship and resources for the study of religion in seventeenth-century England.... A well-written thirty page introductory essay sets the stage for the religio-political interactions, as well as the historiographical issues at stake over several generations. This, in itself, is worth the price of the book. --William H. Brackney
