The Epilogue casts a glance at the lives of Neville and Sidney after their return from exile as well as at Ludlow’s failed attempt to regain a foothold in England after the Glorious Revolution. It also offers an outlook on the intellectual legacy of the three exiles’ works by addressing the Whig canon and its wider influence across Europe. It suggests that the historiography of early modern English republicanism might benefit both from a fuller exploration of religious and transnational networks and from a more comprehensive study of the translation and distribution of English republican works on the Continent.
The fifth section of this volume deals with the discussion of justification in the modern period, and deals mainly with Protestant approaches to the issue. Chapter 27 opens this discussion by considering the emergence of new attitudes to justification in England, in response to growing interest in the cultural virtue of ‘reasonableness’, the concept of ‘natural religion’ and the wider issue of religious toleration. Although there is now growing support for the notion that ‘Deism’ is partly socially constructed for polemical purposes, it remains a useful tool for discussing more rationalist approaches to the Christian faith which emerged in the eighteenth century. This chapter thus considers the Deist critique of the foundations of justification, such as the notion of original sin, focussing on writers such as John Toland and Matthew Tindal. The chapter then turns to consider the debates about justification which took place during the German Enlightenment, particularly the approaches associated with Johann Gottlieb Töllner and Gotthilf Samuel Steinbart. Finally, the chapter considers the philosopher Immanuel Kant’s views on radical evil and justification, which some scholars consider to mark a re-appreciation of the continuing significance of justification in secular moral discourse.
