 H-Net Review: Gary De Krey on England in the 1690s: Revolution, Religion and War
English leaders of the 1690s regularly revisited these seventeenth-century events in their minds and imaginations as they worked out the implications of what had happened in 1688.
Rose treats the 1690s in both their seventeenth and eighteenth-century contexts, and he touches upon three major historical transformations that began in these years.
The first Williamite transformation was the relative closure the decade brought to the issues of the seventeenth century.

 Journal of Seventeenth-Century Music | Vol. 5 No. 1 | Review
(note 4) Second, compositions of the 1690s for the cello average around 100 measures in length whereas the average for Bononcini's sonatas easily exceeds 200 (the shortest is 190 mm.; the longest, 307).
In fact, a later date for Bononcini's sonatas is arguable because of his strict reliance on a four-movement plan (slow-fast-slow-fast) in all twelve sonatas; this strictness of procedure is anomalous for instrumental music of the late seventeenth century.
Judging from the published literature, the four-movement sonata was an eighteenth-century codification that arose from the variety of approaches used during the late seventeenth century.

 Orkneyjar News - New book offers snapshot of seventeenth century Orkney life
The Orkney Poll Taxes of the 1690s, by James Irvine, is a transcription of the surviving poll tax records, gather together and published for the first time.
Like their notorious namesake of the 1980s, the poll taxes of the 1690s were an unpopular and unsuccessful innovation in national taxation.
Many of the original records have been lost over the intervening years, but those that survive provide the equivalent of a census, a treasure trove for genealogists and local historians.

t was the roaring '90s – the 1690s – and British investors were swept up in a passion for new technologies, emerging markets and new theories of the discounted value of future earnings.
Centuries later, the era's commercial zeal was even elevated to philosophical heights by no less than Max Weber, who declared the robust capitalism of the age an extension of the Enlightenment and evidence of the triumph of rationalism.
Chancellor believes that the surging U.S. stock market of the 1990s has less to do with the emergence of a new economy or a new economic paradigm than it does with the sort of delusions that gave rise to earlier speculative bubbles.

England in the 1690s by Craig Rose, ISBN 0631209360 And The Virginia City Trail by Ralph Compton, ISBN 189099006X
This fresh interpretation of the often misunderstood 1690s employs a wide range of sources, including popular ballads, correspondence, diaries, pamphlets, sermons, poems, memoirs, plays and parliamentary debates.
Rose demonstrates that the 1690s, rather than marking the beginning of a placid long eighteenth century, was a decade deeply colored by the experience and memory of the fractious seventeenth century past.

 Leonard Gross Background Dynamics of Amish Movement
And thirdly, I would like to hint at some of the developments, from the 1690s or so, up to around 1720, where I attempt to weigh the significance of some of the major leaders who helped determine the outcomes of the great Swiss Brethren Division of the 1690s.
But whereas in the 1690s it was the Swiss Brethren, Hans Reist and Jakob Guth, et al., who stood on the side of a more lenient use of the ban and shunning, in 1557 it had been the Swiss Brethren, Sylis and Lemke.
For his was the steady and reasoned hand that influenced the movement in the 1690s, favoring a firm approach to orthopraxis which included shunning; at the same time, he also seems to be the one to grant an ongoing viability to an otherwise shaky movement which in the year 1700 was close to collapse.

When re-introduced for trade abroad in 1710 (and in 1714 for trade inside Japan) the better money was no longer affordable to those who had first lost their wealth when acquiring the worthless money of the 1690s and early 1700s.
The shortage of metal and the massive debasement of the coin implemented by the shogunate in the 1690s did everything but increase the trust in money the central authorities offered.
The immediate effects of the recoinage of the 1690s and early 1700s where immensely problematic – Japan suffered a wave of bankruptcies.
