    One thought on “The Rule of Moderation: Violence, Religion and the Politics of Restraint in Early Modern England

    1. Lauren Albert on said:

Early modern use of the word "moderation" was not ours and assumed an amount of violent restraint necessary to its existence. But the repetition of this central idea in relation to different areas got to be a bit much.
