Ranter Women In Norwich

Fascinating post about 2 women being hauled up to their congregational church in 1650 for ‘scandalous & stubborne walking’. You can read it here.
This is a very rare look at the lives of the Ranters of the English Civil War period, all the rarer for being about women.
One of the women had been caught reading Abiezer Coppe’s A Fiery Flying Roll.
Norwich was strongly Parliamentarian during the civil wars.
