Select Writings


Nabil Matar

This book presents letters, treatises and poems from the manuscripts of Peter Sterry (1613-1672) at Emmanuel College Library, Cambridge. It is the first edition that includes complete writings by the chaplain of Oliver Cromwell, friend of John Milton and one of the most imaginative writers of English Puritanism. Sterry provides a unique portrait of nonconformist religious and social life during the period of the «great persecution».
