If you happen to have access to "Liberty", a publication of the 
Seventh Day Adventist Church, the last two issues had an article by a 
British history professor about Cromwell's attitudes toward religious 
liberty.  In spite of the church source the mag frequently offers 
interesting articles.  I get it because they do mass mailings to 
lawyers etc.  It may be available on line or in libraries.
