The Holy State, Peacemaking, and Revolution

(p.78) 3 Ordeal
Thomas Fuller

W. B. Patterson

Oxford University Press

Fuller moved to London as radical events erupted there. Parliament won the right to remain in session without fear of a royal dissolution. Two of King Charles’s ministers were impeached. In early 1642, the king, alarmed by mob activities, left London. Fuller’s The Holy State outlined effectively religious and political policies that would strengthen, rather than split the Church and kingdom. By the end of 1642, he was the minister at the Savoy Chapel, located between the city of London and Westminster, and a member of the peace party within the clergy. Rather than subscribe to the parliamentary cause he left London for Oxford. He became a chaplain in the royalist army of Sir Ralph Hopton and then chaplain to the infant Princess Henrietta in Exeter. In 1646 he returned to London as a defeated royalist in a country that had undergone remarkable changes.
