    • 7. Answers to initial questions
      • Who is in control of local religion?
        • Not just parish ministers, includes lay people and bishops
      • Balance of power between laity and clergy?
        • This varies, sometimes for economic or religious reasons.
        • Those with more control can support different types of Protestantism or turn a blind eye to Catholics
      • 'Godly magistracy' and the impact on wider culture?
        • Strong in some regions, such as East Anglia, and the activism of puritans means they have disproportionate impact.
        • More broadly, all parishes more intensely governed by 17th century
    • 8. Some reflections on puritanism/Gifford dialogue
      • Gifford dialogues how different strands of Protestantism prioritize social cohesion more or less/new role of Protestant ministers
      • Protestantism as a spectrum, while puritanism itself also exists across a spectrum
      • Protestantism (and especially puritanism) demand literacy, in order to read the Bible, and poor much less likely to read, even if literacy rates improving over period
