"True religion and undefiled is this"
2017 Diggers' Festival Talk by Dr. David Taylor FSA, historian and writer from Cobham, Surrey, on how The Bible, and his belief in God helped to shape Gerrard Winstanley's thoughts, writings and subsequent actions from 1649 onwards; and in David's view, clearly place him within the radical Protestant Christian tradition.
Following their eviction from St. George's Hill in 1649, Cobham became the location for the second Diggers' community in Surrey and is where later in his life, Winstanley served as a Church Warden and overseer of the poor at St. Andrew's Parish Church; roles which David is proud to have held more recently.
