Abstract:The iconophobic use of material destruction to affirm God's existence and the immortality of cherished loved ones made the metaphor of iconoclasm a powerful engine for transforming human affection into acts of organized violence. This fundamentalist rhetoric, and the language of toleration that developed in response to it, are the subjects of this dissertation, which considers England's iconophobic renaissance in the context of its origins in mid sixteenth-century religious skepticism, and with attention to its role in shaping attitudes towards toleration and revolution in seventeenth-century Britain.
