Routledge Library Editions: Puritanism
Originally published between 1930 and 1988 many of the volumes in this set are based upon years of painstaking archival research in private and published papers. They provide many insights into the Puritan world of the early 17th Century and:
- Analyse the economic depression in the mid-1600s and the resultant unemployment and poverty which caused social upheaval.
- Discuss the importance of the divisions among the Puritans for political processes within both the church and wider society.
- Examine the motivation of the Puritans who emigrated.
- Discuss the impact the Puritan family had on the spiritual development of the Anglo-American world.
