Baxter: A Holy Commonwealth (Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Holy Commonwealth was written in 1659 by the Puritan minister Richard Baxter (1615-91), and is a candid confession as to why a conservative Puritan fought for Parliament in the Civil War and gave his support to the Cromwells. Baxter publicly repudiated the work in 1670, and in 1683 the Oxford University authorities ordered it to be part of a book-burning that included the works of Hobbes and Milton. This modern edition makes available the work's unique perspective on the relation between Church and magistrate and the origins of the English Civil War.

Synopsis:

First modern edition of a controversial seventeenth-century political and religious work.
