Blair Worden

Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon, was the foremost royalist statesman of his age and the writer of the most influential book on English history ever written, his ‘History of the Rebellion’ through which he had lived. This chapter attempts for him what Chapter 9 tries to do for Milton: to find the threads of intense conviction that held his life and writing together. It explores both his religious and his political beliefs and explains their interaction.

Keywords:   Clarendon, Charles, history, reverence, church
