Laudian and Royalist Polemic in Seventeenth-century England

This chapter focuses on the works of Peter Heylyn during the period from 1660 to 1688. The coronation of Charles II represented the final triumph for Heylyn, although the return of the monarch was not immediately accompanied by the restoration of the Laudian church. During this period, Heylyn completed the three historical works for which he has been most renowned in subsequent centuries. These include Ecclesia Restaurata, Cyprianus Anglicus and Aërius Redivivus. The chapter suggests that when Heylyn died in May 1662, his anxieties about the limited secular powers of the Restoration church would still not have been entirely assuaged.
