A political theorist and pamphleteer during the 1640s, Henry Parker was the most influential defender of the Parliamentary case during the Civil Wars and the early years of the Long Parliament. His theories of popular sovereignty, political representation, and Parliamentary absolutism constitute an original and innovative contribution to early modern political philosophy. This work, which directly addresses the concept of “popular sovereignty” in relation
to divine sovereignty, is quite rare – not appearing in auctions or catalogues in many years, and only a handful of physical copies appearing in WorldCat. Item #301
