This chapter analyses how the London presbyterian ministers, nudged by their Scottish counterparts, rebuilt the religious presbyterian cause in London after the failure of their political gambit in 1646–7. It looks at the substantial divisions among London presbyterians as to which direction to follow in the second civil war but shows that many religious presbyterians remained loyal to Parliament and their vision of what the parliamentarian cause entailed. The chapter concludes by addressing the London presbyterian response to the Army’s forceful repudiation of the Isle of Wight treaty and the trial and execution of King Charles I.
