Hi guys,

Thanks; nice to be here!

Soma, I'm checking out your site a bit. Ever heard of Gerrard Winstanley? Some of his works are very interesting regarding Christ within; I am fortunate to have some of these works and I've been transcribing them with the thought of putting them on the web.

I don't have any primary source material, but I do have Winstanley the Digger by T. Wilson Hayes (1979, Harvard Press). Winstanley was one of a group of radical puritans who tilled (dug) the soil on a contested plot of ground to protest and oppose confiscation of the land by the rich during the English Civil War (1642-1650).

Yes, he was around during a very unstable period of English history, and his socialist tendencies are much reflected in his writings regarding the Earth as property of all, not some.

I'll put one of his works on my website, give me a few hours; it's a downloadable doc, called "The New Law of Righteousness." I transcribed it identically, so the writing is an old english, but I didn't want to change it.

 

Let me know what you all think!
