In this collection, leading scholars address John Morrill’s suggestion the constitutional conflict that wracked the British Isles in the mid-seventeenth century was fuelled primarily by religious beliefs, rather than secular political ideas. The essays revisit concepts of the culture of allegiance, looking at what motivated minorities to fight, whilst emphasising the many elements of fundamental agreement that existed between the warring factions.
