The Restoration and beyond
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This short chapter narrates the upheavals that led to Charles II’s return in May 1660 and then turns to the sexual culture of Restoration England. In nearly every instance, it argues – from the politics of promiscuity championed by the new regime to the anti-popish attacks on court debauchery that issued from its godly critics – the influence of mid-century sexual politics loomed large. Beginning with an analysis of the ‘Rump’ satires of 1659/60 and ending with the post-Reformation polemics of the Popish Plot, the chapter narrates the manifold connections linking the sexual polemics of revolutionary and Restoration England – and beyond.
