This article takes a look at a set of responses to the continental crisis and the origins of the Thirty Years War in the sermon literature of the 1620s. It argues that the pulpits of England were full of what might be called a biblical Enemy Theory. It considers the case that there was a language of scriptural politics that dominated the early modern pulpit. The article finally examines the basis, the theological, and the exegetical of typology.
