    An interesting evening. A protestant nation's (England) transition from absolute monarchy and divine right of kings, transfused throughout by Protestant and Roman Catholic in-fighting, to more democratic rule. I remarked earlier, 22:04:13 "Century of Revolution", that translation of Samuel Pepys (RS, MP & Chief Secretary of the Admiralty at the time) diary account of this period a primary source for English restoration detail. It's not dry as bones historic detail of dates and meetings. It vividly takes the reader through the great plague, the fire of London and the Dutch wars during the time of Charles 11 and James 11 with comment on Pepys wife and household detail: including Pepys extra curricula libido moments. Index check on one book passed around (can't remember the title!) had copious Pepys notations. So let me repeat again, the best translation of Pepys diaries and insight in to the English Restoration period, in my mind, is Arthur Bryant's work. Find one issue of three (The Man in the Making, 1633-1639) available at Chapters, $9.98: a good starter for a sense and understanding of the times. The other two Bryant volumes, Years of Peril - one mention of Locke - and The Saviour of the Navy should be available at your library. Locke straddled this time frame but was peripheral. A word of caution. Writings, books, on this historic period are never ending. Pepys diary translations among them. Latest Pepys (a female "titled" I believe author) not worth a damn: it gathers dust in my library. Bryant I swear by................................. Menippus
