Summary

Whether viewed as subjugator or protector, Oliver Cromwell was a titan of 17th century England. French theologian Merle D'Aubigné wrote this 1847 biography for one purpose: "rectification of the common opinion with regard to Cromwell's religious character."

And rectify he does. Working from Cromwell's letters and speeches, he reveals the Protector to be a man of prayer and Bible study, exceedingly devout, consecrated to God, a devoted family man.

Included are Cromwell's tender letters to his children, his response to the proposal that he be crowned, and his thoughts at the end of his life, plus observations by George Fox and Milton and the death warrant of Charles I. What was the only important blemish to be found in this honorable man? Merle d'Aubigné's answer will surprise you.
