This chapter analyses the structure and methods of Gangraena in relation to the models of anti-heretical writing in the early church and during the Reformation. It compares Edwards’s book to other 1640s works against heresy, blasphemy, and sectarianism. Edwards’s treatment of the Independents, his discussion of social hierarchy and of gender relations, his narrative techniques, and truth-telling startegies complete the chapter.

Keywords:   early church, Reformation, heresy, blasphemy, sectarianism, Independents, social hierarchy, gender relations, narrative, Thomas Edwards
