Description


This history explores a year that fell within one of the least understood periods in British history—the Interregnum between the execution of Charles I and the restoration of Charles II—and reclaims it as one of the most politically exciting and culturally creative eras of European history. Far from being the dreary Puritan society of royalist myth, the Interregnum was one of the most intellectually thrilling times in British history. This was the crucible in which modern British thought—inquiring, iconoclastic, and creative—was forged, and it marked the foundation of modern British democracy: pluralistic, inclusive, and based on a people's charter to rule.
