How the Old World Ended

Jonathan Scott

Yale University Press

This chapter considers the period 1672–1702, during which time the Restoration was unravelling and England saw its relationship to the Netherlands changing once more. In 1670–2, England was attempting to undo the religious settlement of 1662, ally with the most powerful monarch in Christendom, and embark on a war of annihilation against the United Provinces. The latter in particular would yield some cross-Channel territory and erase the memory of Chatham. These measures, though a desperate gamble, were not only opposed but abhorred by an overwhelming majority of England's subjects. And during this time, Protestantism was in decline not just in England, but across Europe, and certainly within the United Provinces as well.
