This chapter depicts the Restoration as a period of continuous negotiation over the nature of monarchy as defined between the poles of “secular” and “Christian” monarchy. It analyzes the laws and national ceremonies of the kings over a fifteen-year period to demonstrate this continuous effort to define and redefine the nature of the monarchy. It evokes the terrain in which the population at large was incited to participate in negotiations as to the nature of monarchy in this period, drawing upon the correspondence which passed between civil and ecclesiastical officials regarding the tricky problem of the missionaries.
