  English Interregnum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The English Interregnum was the period of parliamentary and military rule in the land occupied by modern-day England and Wales after the English Civil War.
This was the beginning of a short period of restoration of the Commonwealth of England.
Towards the end of the Interregnum, Parliamentarian generals, Charles Coote and Richard Boyle (who were also pre-war English settlers) seized the strong points in Ireland in preparation for the Restoration of the monarchy.

The first decade was occupied with the Civil War in England, with the reduction of Ireland and Scotland, with the abolition of the kingship and of the House of Lords, with the early and crude efforts of the Rump Parliament to conduct the business of the nation alone.
England and New England were now moving in nearly parallel lines, and a spirit of sympathy existed between the dominant parties in each.

 Lalor, Cyclopaedia of Political Science, V.2, Entry 201, INTERREGNUM: Library of Economics and Liberty
In an hereditary monarchy the heir to the throne is king by right after the death of his predecessor; every one knows the expression: "The king is dead, long live the king." An interregnum can occur only in states where, at the end of one dynasty, the new prince succeeds only after a certain interval.
There was also an interregnum of one year between the death of Charlemagne and the accession of Charles the Simple; an interregnum of five months in 1316, from the death of Louis the Quarrelsome to the birth of John I, who reigned four days.
Thus the interregnums which were so terrible and so disastrous in ancient history, are accidents entirely foreign to the history of modern times.

 History in Focus: War - review of The Making of a World Power
Therefore, it could be argued that a significant discontinuity between the Interregnum and Restoration periods lies in part in the abandonment of the English Republics brief ascendancy as a major land power, and the emergence of Britain as a naval and expeditionary force, a policy still in place into the twentieth century.
This then is part of the reason that England does not fit into the pattern, fragmented and partial as it might now seem, found in the rest of Europe.
This is not necessarily to undermine the authors central premise, that it was the financial administration and systems established in the civil wars and Interregnum were vital to the later development of Britain as a military and imperial power.

 Commonwealth of England - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Commonwealth of England was the republican government which ruled first England and then Ireland and Scotland from 1649 to 1660.
After the regicide of the monarch Charles I on January 30, 1649, its existence was initially declared (" An Act declaring England to be a Commonwealth") by the Rump Parliament on May 19, 1649.
The term "The Commonwealth" is, however, loosely used to describe the system of government during the whole of 1649 to 1660, the years of the English Interregnum.

From 1649 to 1660, England was therefore a republic during a period known as the Interregnum ('between reigns').
Throughout the Interregnum, Cromwell's relationship with Parliament was a troubled one, with tensions over the nature of the constitution and the issue of supremacy, control of the armed forces and debate over religious toleration.
After Cromwell's death in 1658, and the failure of his son Richard's short-lived Protectorate, the army under General Monk invited Charles I's son, Charles, to become King.

 Issue #1: Puritanism, Spiritualism, and Quakerism
The conditions brought on by the Civil War in England, not primarily continental "mystical" influences, were responsible not only for the splintering of Puritanism into a group of orthodox "denominations" but for the rise of the "fanatics or enthusiasts to the left of them".
The upheavals of the Interregnum found many men experiencing hopes and even visions that convinced them that very shortly or even now man no longer was to be restricted to an ambiguous and indirect, if powerful, sense of the divine presence.
When such a spotlight is trained on the spectrum of religious expression in seventeenth-century England and America, it becomes immediately apparent that the creed, cult and code, and community of Puritans, on the one hand, and Quakers and Spiritualists on the other, were markedly different.

SECTION IX THE INTERREGNUM The documents of the years 1642-60, though relatively few, are entitled to occupy a section by themselves because they represent a period unique in English history.
Civil conflict and revolutionary government mark off the Interregnum as a gap in an otherwise unbroken story of constitutional growth, and impart to the pertinent documents a novelty that will be obvious even to the beginning student.
The Interregnum, being an age of violent partisanship and of revolutionary change, naturally roused that interest to a new height.

An interregnum, which I would define very broadly as the time between two periods of effective rule, is a horrible thing.
Place an intelligent individual in the midst of an interregnum and he will sooner or later realize that events around him are not necessarily being shaped by the officially recognized regent or ineffective ruler.
Unlike the average interregnum, however, the one affecting Catholic Christendom is much more complex in nature, involving three layers of confusion of authority.

Music, however, was allowed, and William Davanant (a writer of masques) produced some operas with Italianate stagings (with perhaps some illegal performances).

When Elizabeth I succeeded to the throne in 1558, however, she restored a moderate Protestantism, codifying the Anglican faith in the Act of Uniformity, the Act of Supremacy, and the Thirty-Nine Articles.
From the time of the Elizabethan settlement on, the Church of England (the Anglican Church) attempted, with varying degrees of success, to consolidate its position both as a distinctive middle way between Catholicism and Puritanism and as the national religion of England.
The Puritan emphasis on individualism, however, made the establishment of a national Presbyterian Church during the Interregnum impossible, and the Restoration of the Monarchy under Charles II in 1660 facilitated the re-establishment of the Anglican Church, purged of Puritans, who split into various dissenting factions.

The most obvious difference, and the foundation of many other differences between England and the continent, was the dominance of Catholicism on the continent, in contrast to the hegemony of left-wing Protestantantism in England during the Interregnum.
During the Interregnum, a focal point of royalist sociability and secret political plotting was the house of musician and composer Henry Lawes, one of the few places Cavendish visited during her stay in London in 1651 (Whitaker 136-7).
As was the case with radical Protestantism in Interregnum London, the influence of Catholic sensibilities on the continent was not limited to theology and religious ritual.

Short-lived as it was, this work of political innovation deserves careful study — if for no other reason, because it somewhat anticipated such measures as the great Reform Act of 1832.
To the Commonwealth and Protectorate were also due the first governmental union of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland; the first establishment within them of even partial religious toleration; and the first practical recognition of economic solidarity between the mother country and the colonies — by the Navigation Act of 1651.

The early modern period in England -- particularly the Civil War and Interregnum years which marked the height of political upheaval and civil unrest -- gave rise to public opinion, political parties, and cultures of religious dissent.
State and church authorities now had to argue their positions in an arena of debate shaped by the populace as well as the marketplace of print.
Also under investigation are the ways in which print and interpretive practices shaped seventeenth-century culture, how present-day scholars interpret the period, and how the study of the history of popular culture enriches our understanding of contemporary popular culture.
