Log-in for full text

Chapter 5 directly examines the Cromwellian Protectorate’s intelligence and espionage system of 1653–58. It reassesses the secret work of Secretary John Thurloe and his master the Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell. It takes the reader into the Cromwellian regime’s office routine, its intelligence analysis and into the nature of what actually lay behind the realities of espionage and secrecy under John Thurloe and the Protectorate regime. It also seeks to show just how this secret intelligence material entered into the Cromwellian governmental system and how it was used there to formulate and support policy both at home and abroad. Last of all, it reassesses the important figure of John Thurloe in this secret world.
