In many ways William Penn is a familiar figure to those interested in the history of religious liberty. Penn's life and career have been explored from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, and a number of works over the past half-century have advanced our understanding of Penn's importance in his English and American contexts. Yet just a handful of years short of the 300th anniversary of Penn's death, we still lack the definitive treatment of his political thought as a whole, one that explores its philosophical and religious sources and places it into its many contexts. This project aims to rectify that lacuna, one especially lamentable given the explosion of historically informed scholarship on early modern political thought. The emergence of transatlantic studies as a way of integrating the histories of England and its territories in the Americas makes a new look at this important figure in English and American history an especially timely undertaking as well.
