This chapter demonstrates how Edwards’s place as a lecturer in Christ Church, in the heart of revolutionary London, enabled him to produce Gangraena. His links with London Presbyterian clergy, with the Westminster Assembly, the London Common Council, and the Stationers’ Company brought him oral evidence, letters, and other manuscript sources. The accuracy of Edwards’s picture of religious divisions in London and in the provinces (particularly Kent and Essex), and his description of the New Model Army are assessed by comparing his version with that in other sources.

Keywords:   lecturer, London, Presbyterian, Westminster Assembly, Common Council, Stationers Company, Kent, Essex, New Model Army, Thomas Edwards
