A rhetoric of radical excess developed among the Puritan wing of English Protestantism throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, scriptural injunctions to will the sword of the spirit against the enemies of the Lord. The most potent of these texts was the pronouncement from Revelation 3:16: Because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spue thee out of my mouth. The tradition culminated in a politically virulent and highly effective rhetoric of zeal, which was deployed against the Church of England, and ultimately against the monarchy, during the late 1630s and the 1640s.
