This chapter outlines how we can understand why men and women risked themselves by expressing seditious memories. It does so by establishing the Restoration’s ‘politics of memory’; that is, the efforts by certain parties, including former Parliamentarians and Royalists, to gain control of how the events of the 1640s and 1650s were remembered publicly (‘mnemonic hegemony’). It is put forward that, following an attempt to cast the divisions of the wars into oblivion, Royalists seized the authority to speak for the past, legitimising thereby the censure and censorship of Parliamentarians and republicans. The chapter finishes by measuring the impact of censorship and censure on their targets.
