This book presents writings produced by the Muggletonians---an unusual seventeenth-century English sect founded in 1652 by John Reeve and Lodowick Muggleton. The volume draws on documents from a recently discovered Muggleton archive and rare seventeenth-century tracts. Among those included are Muggleton's autobiography, excerpts from works co-written by Muggleton and Reeve, letters, songs (including ones composed to celebrate Muggleton's release from prison), and miscellany.

Industry Reviews

Underwood has shed fresh light on the complex and tangled history of Civil War sectarianism and opens an intriguing window into the lively religious underworld of seventeenth-century London. Continuity and Change Underwood's introduction helpfully situates the sect within the context of other radical religious movements of the time. Continuity and Change A patient, scholarly contribution to our understanding of seventeenth-century religion. English Historical Review
