This book reconsiders the existence of an early Stuart Puritan movement, and examines the ways in which Puritan clergymen encouraged greater sociability with their like-minded colleagues, both in theory and in practice, to such an extent that they came to define themselves as 'a peculiar people', a community distinct from their less faithful rivals. Their voluntary communal rituals encouraged a view of the world divided between 'us' and 'them'. This provides a context for a renewed examination of the thinking behind debates on ceremonial nonconformity and reactions to the Laudian changes of the 1630s. From this a new perspective is developed on arguments about emigration and church government, arguments that proved crucial to Parliamentarian unity during the English Civil War.

Tom Webster

Tom Webster was born in 1931, and was educated at Sheffield City Grammar School. Before he could start his career, National Service intervened. In his youth, he was a promising sportsman, with several trials at professional football clubs. However, his destiny was in teaching. After training in Sheffield, he taught in the West Riding before becoming a headteacher at a rural school in Lincolnshire. He settled down to a headship in Newark, where he stayed, until retirement in 1989. Tom had always written stories, but a friend suggested that he tried his hand at a radio play, and he sent his firs
