L'insurrection de Thomas Venner (1661) : anglicanisme et dissidence au défi des prophéties

Abstract : This chapter analyses the printed reactions to Thomas Venner's January 1661 insurrection in the City of London that were published within days or weeks of the events. It is proposed that this Fifth-Monarchy rebellion was of paramount importance for the future of dissent in Restoration England but a careful study of the rhetorical war that the opposition waged in the press is still lacking. Particular attention is here given to 1) the type of discourse that was being experimented with to counteract the prophetical writings of future dissenters, 2) the confusion orchestrated by the governement between " Anabaptists " and all religious or political dissenters and 3) the role and representations of the female Fifth Monarchists.
