The Tragedy of 1662

The Tragedy of 1662The Tragedy of 1662: The Ejection and Persecution of the Puritans by Lee Gatiss.

Also available on Kindle (affiliate link)

In these days of spiritual ignorance in the country and doctrinal laxity in the church, many Anglicans look back to former times with a certain degree of wistfulness. One date lingers in the collective Anglican memory as suggestive of a golden era: 1662.

Yet 1662 was not a good year for those to whom the gospel and a good conscience were more precious than the institutional church. Hundreds of ‘evangelical’ puritan ministers were forced to leave the Church of England. Persecution of “dissenters” such as Richard Baxter, John Bunyan, and John Owen continued for a quarter of a century as they were banned from preaching and their like-minded congregations forbidden to meet.
