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.
