D’Ewes’s marriage enabled him to turn his energies to his research projects and draw back from his plan to follow his father into the practice of law. This chapter begins with the completion of his construction of his Puritan spirituality and his discovery of the significance of the early history of Christianity in Britain (and especially the Pelagian heresy) for his understanding of the great struggle between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism in his own time. He followed the news of the success of Habsburg armies in the Thirty Years War with fear and trepidation and became increasingly alarmed at the rise of an anti-Calvinist (Arminian) faction of clergymen in the Church of England. He also began building what would become his huge library of books, manuscripts, and coins, and he experienced the death of his father Paul in 1631.

Keywords:   soteriology, Thirty Years War, Pelagianism, Arminianism, anti-Calvinism, early Stuart parliaments, George Villiers (duke of Buckingham), La Rochelle, Gustavus Adolphus (king of Sweden)
