Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Mortimer’s study offers crucial insight into this previously ill-understood aspect of English history, shedding light on [Socinian] influence during the mid 17th century … there is much to be learnt from this impressive study about a whole range of interrelated debates that were of central importance to the religious and political developments of the period."
Richard Bell, Reviews in History

"… a valuable work …"
Ted Vallance, The Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"Sarah Mortimer's examination of Socinian thought in England during the Revolution is long overdue."
Melissa M. Gladwell, Sixteenth Century Journal

"Eighteenth-century English Socinianism is deserving of further study and the way will be illuminated by Mortimer's very fine book."
Jeffrey R. Wigelsworth, Canadian Journal of History

"All students of seventeenth-century English theology, history, and politics are indebted to Sarah Mortimer for a richly contextualized account of the widespread reception and utilization of a variety of Socinian ideas."
Martyn Cowan, Churchman
