This will be a short post today as I have been attempting to do some uni work...
One of my essays over the holidays is about why Puritans didn't like the Elizabethan religious settlement. I've been moaning about how dull Puritans are to anyone who will listen, telling them to think of all the fun bits of Christianity, get rid of them, then you have Puritanism.
For my essay I've been reading a Christopher Hill book 'Society and Puritanism', he mentions a contemporary Bishop, Jeremy Taylor, who insisted that Jesus Christ never laughed. This tickled me, knowing that Puritans had an idea that they were as dull as dishwater.
Hope your all having a lovely bank holiday weekend, don't eat too many easter eggs! :P
