Matthew James Gray recently completed his doctorate on looking at religious toleration and persecution in seventeenth-century England. In this talk, he will share some of the things he learned during his studies. Specifically, Matt argues that the dynamics of toleration were always multi-dimensional. It wasn’t just that the government had to decide whether to tolerate religious minorities; toleration and intolerance were occurring in various directions, including between the various religious groups themselves. Matt will also explore

  • the attitudes of the persecutors,
  • whether they were absolutists or relativists,
  • “the cycle of intolerance”, and
  • relevance to today.
