Dear Panel,

Is there any graphic chart or helpful comparison guide to all the different
protestant sects and manifestations that were popping up around Milton's
time. I just finished Hill's Milton and the Revolution and he does a pretty
good job in explaining who believed what - but I find it challenging
sometime to keep the Levelllers, Ranters, Diggers, Puritans (and their many
variations) Muggletonians, Arians, Arminianists etc.  all straight.  Hill's
book was terrific.

As Carol said (but didn't do), check the Milton concordance. Milton  
uses "Puritan" in "Reason," I.784; "Eikonoklastes," 3.475 and 482;  
"Puritanical" in "Of Reformation," 1.586; "Puritanisme" in "Of  
Reformation," 1.602; "Puritans" in "Of Reformation," 1.540; in  
"Animadversions," 1.668 and 726; in "Reason," 1.788; in "Apology for  
Smectymnuus," 1.905; "Tenure," 3.226 and 242; in "Eikonoklastes,"  
3.404 and 500; and "Puritants" in "Eikonoklastes," 3.432.
