The 17th century was a dynamic period characterized by huge political and social changes, including the Civil War, the execution of Charles I, the Commonwealth and the Restoration. The Britain of 1714 was recognizably more modern than it was in 1603. At the heart of these changes was religion and the search for an acceptable religious settlement, which stimulated the Pilgrim Fathers to leave to settle America, the Popish plot and the Glorious Revolution in which James II was kicked off the throne. This book looks at both the private aspects of human beliefs and practices and also institutional religion, investigating the growing competition between rival versions of Christianity and the growing expectation that individuals should be allowed to worship as they saw fit.Offers a substantial narrative of English, Scottish and Irish history across the whole seventeenth centuryExplains the significance of religion in the society and politics of the seventeenth century in terms that can be readily comprehended by those with little or no prior knowledgeProposes a new framework for understanding the seventeenth century as a period of competition between rival religious values and idealsOffers readers a unique introduction to the sources for the history of seventeenth-century religionPortray and explores the worship and religious activity of ordinary seventeenth-century parishioners  Review of the first three books in the Religion, Politics and Society in Britain series:''All three writers have made distinguished contributions to the specialist literature and, on the basis of these books, this will prove a most promising series intellectually, as well as one that offers much to students.''Jeremy Black, Professor of History, Exeter University
