(p.1) Introduction
The Crisis of British Protestantism

Hunter Powell

Manchester University Press

The chapter introduces the reader to the various religious and political parties in the Puritan revolution. The standard storyline of the Westminster assembly described as an ecclesiological warfare between presbyterians and congregationalists. A closer look at the sources reveals a far more complex narrative that defies easy categorization. By looking at the religious and political debates in the pivotal years of 1638-1644 this book sets out to create a new framework for studying the Puritan revolution.
