(p.257) 13 Conclusion
England's Culture Wars

Bernard Capp

Oxford University Press

The Conclusion sums up the achievements of the interregnum reformers, and the need to assess their record within the context of the obstacles they faced and the turbulent politics of their brief period of dominance. It shows how puritan goals overlapped with humanist values of ‘civility’ and were reinforced by the widespread conviction that demographic pressures made tight social regulation essential. It examines how these factors generated similar moves for moral reformation after the Restoration, and especially after the 1688 Revolution.
