Abstract

The five repressive acts regarding religion passed between 1661 and 1665. Though the legislation was named for the earl of Clarendon (Edward Hyde*) and supported by many of his strongly Anglican backers in the House of Commons, Lord Chancellor Clarendon repeatedly criticized and attempted to moderate the "sharp laws."
