The Devil in Disguise

Deception, Delusion, and Fanaticism in the Early English Enlightenment

Mark Knights

  • Illuminates the impact of the two British revolutions of the seventeenth century - and the shifts in religious, political, scientific, literary, economic, social, and moral culture that they brought about
  • Uses the dramatic story of the Cowpers of Hertford a microcosm of this changing world - a tale of murder, bigamy, a scandalous novel, and a tyrannized wife
  • Shows how the early Enlightenment was shaped by local and personal struggles on the ground rather than just the great thinkers of the time
