The Concise Encyclopedia of the Revolutions and Wars of England, Scotland, and Ireland, 1639-1660 (Google eBook)
The Concise Encyclopedia of the Revolutions and Wars of England, Scotland, and Ireland, 1639-1660 examines in great detail the key people, places, and events that occurred during the wars and revolutions between 1639 and 1660, focusing not only on the English Civil Wars, but also on the Commonwealth and Protectorate periods that followed, through the Restoration. Although similar sources tend to be limited to the English, Manganiello documents the large roles played by the Irish, Scots, and other Europeans. Biographies include military, religious, and political leaders, as well as sailors, writers, inventors, doctors, influential women, and rabble-rousers. Detailed accounts of battles and skirmishes with strategic and tactical maps are also provided, along with military terms and information on weapons, tactics, uniforms, and flags. Source documents, important political terms and definitions, and religious groups and sects that arose during the period are also presented.
With more than 500 maps, photographs, and illustrations, this massive resource combines a wealth of information not available in any other single source.

Page 50 - For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
