  Chapter 3 The Newtonian Enlightenment
By the 1680s such an alliance, with the freedom of inquiry and practical application for science that it implied, seemed doomed by the pretensions of absolutist monarchy throughout Continental Europe but now especially in France and England.
Beginning in the 1680s we see a rapid disintegration of confidence in the doctrine of the divine right of kings, an increasing emphasis among political theorists on the rights of subjects rather than on their duties.
Indeed by the 1680s it could be said that elite culture had been badly served by the guardians of religious orthodoxy.

 Projects - 1680s Fontange
There's a only couple of engravings, rarely adequate for deducing the construction, and most of these depict the high, narrow fontanges of the 1690.
The apparently most popular style of the 1680s was called fontange à la sultane, consisting of several "layers" of bows and lace and a diaphanous shawl hung across them that often had a pattern of stripes.
The engravings show alternating fair and dark layers, the dark ones being ribbon bows, the fair ones either bows or lace.

 H-Net Review: Howard Nenner on Radical Whigs and Conspiratorial Politics in Late Stuart ...
This study of Whig radicalism is largely about the 1680s and the activities of those politicians, adventurers, and polemicists who in that decade were willing "to use and justify violence to obtain their ends" (xiii).
Zook has done a good job of identifying and describing what she refers to as a radical political culture.
To be fair, Zook, more cautious than Colley, does not make the same exaggerated claim for 1688, but neither does she lag far behind.

 Prairie Fire: The Indian Experience: French Arrival, 1673
During the next decade, other Frenchmen traveled down the Illinois and Mississippi rivers, mapping territory, seeking trading partners, or spreading the gospel.
In the early 1680s, the French began establishing forts in the western Great Lakes region, including Fort Chicago and Fort de Crèvecoeur (near modern-day Peoria) in 1680 and Fort St. Louis (near modern-day Utica) in 1682.
These forts did not usually have large French garrisons; more generally, they held just a few troops, a mission, and a trading post.
