William Prynne (1600 1669) was a staunch Puritan. Like many Puritans he was strongly opposed to stage plays and he included in his Histriomastix (1632) a denunciation of actresses which was widely felt to be an attack of Queen Henrietta Maria. He was tried in 1633 and sentenced to imprisonment, a fine, and the removal of part of his ears. He was, however, able to continue his activities from prison, and in 1637 he was sentenced to the removal of the rest of his ears and to be branded.

He supported the Parliamentary cause in the English Civil War. This pamphlet is an impassioned answer to accusations of disloyalty to King Charles II during the Restoration. The pamphlet seems to have worked since not only was he spared his life, he was rewarded with public office: he became the Keeper of Records in the Tower of London.
