This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the political and religious beliefs of William Blundell, a seventeenth-century Catholic gentleman in Lancashire, England. Blundell's surviving papers clearly demonstrate that he actively ensured his own survival and played a prominent part in local and national politics. This chapter suggests that Blundell's political culture was not solely defined by his recusancy and that his standing in the social order and his gender also had an impact on his worldview.
