This book is a study of puritan theology and intra-puritan theological dispute; of lay clerical relations and of the politics of the parish; and thus of the social history of parish and puritan religion in London. It also discusses the local effects of national theological/political events such as the rise of Laudianism and the Personal Rule of Charles I, finally analysing the long-term origins of the ideological cacophany of the 1640s.
