The 17th century was one, of the most stormy periods of English history. The political situation in the country was complicated.

The 17th century was the century that lasted from January 1, 1601, to December 31, 1700. It falls into the Early Modern period of Europe and in that continent (whose impact on the world was increasing) was characterized by the Baroque cultural movement, the latter part of the Spanish Golden Age, the Dutch Golden Age, the French Grand Siècle dominated by Louis XIV, the Scientific Revolution, the world's first public company Dutch East India, and according to some historians, the General Crisis

During the 20th century though, and for various reasons, many of Britain’s aristocratic families ended up short on funds and so weren’t able to keep these homes maintained. One of the ways around this was to open them up to the public (or sell them to a public body), which means that today a great many of England’s finest homes and palaces are open for touring. Some of these are still privately owned, whilst others have been given to national organisations such as the National Trust and English Heritage for ongoing maintenance and upkeep

In the 17th century, religion was far more important than it is today. It was a vital part of everyday life. Furthermore, there was no toleration in matters of religion. Parliament passed the Triennial Act, which stated that parliament must be called every three years. A Dissolution Act stated that parliament could not be dissolved without its consent. Fining people who had not obtained knighthoods was declared illegal, so was fining landowners who had encroached on royal land.

In England the 17th Century was a time of POLITICAL and RELIGIOUS TURMOIL. Struggle for power between Parliament, w/c wanted more authority and throne, which held the theory that kings ruled by a DIVINE RIGHT bestowed by God, not by the consent of Parliament. Political and Religious Upheaval. Oliver Cromwell become the England first non royalruler headed England as Lord Protector of the Commonwealth for nine violent years until his death in 1658 His son Richard attempted to fill his shoes but he failed. 1660 the English people had their fill of Puritanism and were happy to restore the monarchy to a Stuart King. At the invitation of Parliament, the eldest son of Charles I returned to London from his exile in France and Holland and assumed the throne as Charles II His return in 1660 called the RESTORATION His entire reign saw a rebirth in theatre and literature.

During the 17th century, two very different types of governments developed in Europe. In France, Louis XIV established an Absolutist State, while in England, Elizabeth I followed a Parliamentary government. Even though, Louis XIV and Elizabeth I saw a brilliant flourishing in their kingdoms, only one of them had the power to rule successfully. He needed a finance minister, so he hired Colbert to strengthen the economy and trade of France. Louis XIV was an extremely authoritive king, but people called him the Sun King for they witnessed how France was a place of art and glory. In England, Elizabeth I followed a Parliamentary government, which allowed her to rule her people, and in the time, satisfy Parliament with her kingdom policies. Elizabeth I aimed for peace and security to England, which was why she didn't allow any religious strives to arise in her it.

Among the exponents of this were the writer Jonathan Swift (1667 - 1745), the founders of the first English newspapers R. Steele and J. Addison, the authors of prescriptive English grammars and the great 18th c. lexicographers.

During the mid-17th century, coffee was no longer viewed solely as a medicinal plant. Oxford, possessing the unique combination of exotic scholarship interests and a vibrant experimental community, was the first English city to establish a coffeehouse. A Jewish entrepreneur named Jacob established the first English coffee house in 1650, which he named the Angel. According to Cowan, Oxford was seen as an important fixture for the creation of a distinctive coffeehouse culture throughout the 1650s. The Queen's Lane Coffee House in Oxford, still in existence, was established in 1654.
