This is a collection of essays in Welsh on the history of Puritanism in 17th century Wales. The contributors examine the pioneering work of John Penry; the Established Church and Puritan development; Welsh Puritan emigrants and their activity in America; the careers of early Puritan leaders - William Erbery, Morgan Llwyd, Walter Cradock, Richard Jones, and Stephen Hughes. A new interpretation is offered of the Act for the Propagation of the Gospel and Welsh culture. It should appeal to all those interested in the contributions of Puritanism to religious and social development in Wales in the `Century of Revolution.' In Welsh throughout.
