    Did the advent of Oliver Cromwell, The English Civil War, King Charles I’s execution (I believe he became a symbol fof Catholic revival, him being a martyr), and Puritan rule (even banning Christmas at one point) lead to a revival of Anglo-Papism ans Anglo Catholicism?

    No, Anglo Psplism as a phenomenon emerged really at the end of the nineteenth century, it’s pretty alien to Anglicanism as such

    The death of St Charles and the temporary bloody triumph of the Dissenters however did prove to the Anglican divines that the danger lay not just from the Roman Catholics any more
