Overview

The influence of millenarian thinking upon Cromwell's England is well-known. The cultural and intellectual conceptions of the role of millenarian ideas in the 'long' 18th century when, so the 'official' story goes, the religious sceptics and deists of Enlightened England effectively tarred such religious radicalism as 'enthusiasm' has been less well examined. This volume endeavors to revise this 'official' story and to trace the influence of millenarian ideas in the science, politics, and everyday life of England and America in the 17th and 18th centuries.
