This book deals with the influence of the Scottish Covenanters during a turbulent period of British History. This book examines the importance of the Scottish Covenanters during one of the most turbulent and complex periods of early modern British History. It uses a chronological framework to discuss thematic issues, from the emergence of the Covenanting movement in 1637 to the conquest of Scotland by Oliver Cromwell in 1651. It discusses the role of the Covenanters in the British and Irish conflict of the 1640s and their impact on continental European affairs in the context of the Thirty Years War. It discusses the effect of the godly Covenanters on Scottish Society and examines social themes such as war widows, victims of warfare and Irish refugees. It discusses the Covenanters in Scottish, British and European contexts. It uses contemporary source documents to illustrate social, political, military, economic and religious issues. It covers three kingdoms of the Stuart monarchy.
