This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is about Black Bartholomew's Day, the mass ejection of Puritan ministers from the Church of England in 1662, and which uses political language and the historic meaning of the farewell sermons of the departing ministers. The book considers these sermons in the context of Restoration nonconformity, the public circulation of the Bartholomean texts and the polemical responses to Bartholomean preaching.

Keywords: Black Bartholomew's Day; Puritan ministers; Church of England; political language; historic meaning; Restoration; Bartholomean texts
