John Lilburne and the Levellers

John Lilburne and the Levellers - Saturday 20th January 2:30pm - 4pm

 

The event marks the publication of a new book of essays by leading historians reevaluating the life of John Lilburne, or 'Freeborn John' as he was called by the London crowd, one of the leading figures in the Levellers, the highly influential radical sect that called for law reform, religious tolerance, extended suffrage, the rights of freeborn Englishmen, and a new form of government that was answerable to the people and underpinned by a written constitution.
