Print, Radicalism, and the English Civil War

This project seeks to illuminate the origins and nature of the forms of radicalism that emerged during the English civil war of the 1640s. Taking print and print culture as its starting point, the project traces and explores the rise of both religious radicalism (i.e., new and disruptive forms of heterodox piety, such as anabaptism and antinomianism), and political radicalism (most specifically, the transformative constitutional and social program of the Levellers), and attempts to chart the connections between them. In the process, it seeks to account for the emergence of the first democratic political movement in post-classical western history; and more generally, to explain how and why the English civil war mutated into a revolution.
