Baptist Identity in the English Revolution

Matthew C. Bingham

Oxford Studies in Historical Theology

  • Offers the first holistic and historically rigorous analysis of early modern English Baptists in over a decade
  • Provocatively suggests that the term "Baptist" is an unhelpful way to conceptualize mid-seventeenth-century actors
  • Explains why the early English Baptists rejected infant baptism and why they rejected it when they did
  • Presents a fresh reinterpretation of toleration during the Cromwellian Protectorate
