Permanent Revolution - The Reformation and the Illiberal Roots of Liberalism

Author(s): James Simpson

Critical Thinking

How did the English Reformation, with its illiberal, intolerant beginnings, lay the groundwork for the Enlightenment--free will, liberty of conscience, religious toleration, constitutionalism, and all the rest? In his provocative rewriting of the history of liberalism, James Simpson uncovers its unexpected debt to Protestant evangelicalism.
