After the Restoration, parliamentarians continued to identify with
the decisions to oppose and resist crown and established church.
This was despite the fact that expressing such views between 1660
and 1688 was to open oneself to charges of sedition or treason.
This book uses approaches from the field of memory studies to
examine 'seditious memories' in seventeenth-century Britain, asking
why people were prepared to take the risk of voicing them in
public. It argues that such activities were more than a
manifestation of discontent or radicalism - they also provided a
way of countering experiences of defeat. Besides speech and
writing, parliamentarian and republican views are shown to have
manifested as misbehaviour during official commemorations of the
civil wars and republic. The book also considers how such views
were passed on from the generation of men and women who experienced
civil war and revolution to their children and grandchildren. -- .
