comment What was the official attitude to Cromwell after the Glorious Revolution?
@Alex You mean, like Thomas Moore was allowed to have his own attitude? Or maybe Thomas Becket? Or John Fisher? What is true nowadays was not necessarily true in earlier periods.

comment What was the official attitude to Cromwell after the Glorious Revolution?
@PieterGeerkens With all due respect, I think you are really missing the point here. Cromwell's body was dug up and beheaded and his head was displayed in public on a pole for 24 years. Clearly, the restored Stuart monarchy did care quite a lot about him. Now, I strongly suspect that the Glorious Revolution brought some change in the matter but it's been surprisingly difficult for me to track it down. Hence my question. I'm afraid so far we've not managed to dig deep enough (probably not digging at the right places).

comment About the Ottoman-Spanish truce in 1580
Apropos, Philip was half-hearted about fighting the Turks even before 1580 for the obvious reasons, he was busy against his other enemies). In fact, Lepanto was fought and won in contravention of his express secret order to Don Juan not to engage in major fighting.

@Alex I'm not asking about today. I am asking about the 17th century (and early in the 18th).

@SJuan76 Sounds about right to me.

@Alex Actually, you might want to look into the Goths more in depth. They were Christians by the time they sacked Rome and while they were not particularly nice people, they were not so ignorant of culture as you suspect them to be.

@Michael That's a trick the Romans had been adept at centuries before the Brits.
