discussion of the article[edit]

This article may need clean up. There are not enough references, full names, and there are apparent grammatic problems. There may be style consistency problems.

Example 1, vagueness: "Walter, Thomas, and Bartholomew Legate" in the first sentence.

Example 2: "The Seekers were not an organised religious group in any way that would be would be recognised today."

Example 3: The use of single quotes instead of double quotes.

  • REPLY: Example 1 - Walter, Thomas and Bart are brothers; Example 2 - i.e. not like a religious cult or denomination; Example 3 - pedantic point but easily fixed. Yozzer66 14:08, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Levellers and Diggers[edit]

The Levellers definitely do not belong in this article. Good old Freeborn John did not base his political rights on the Bible.

The Diggers probably should not be included in this articles they were communist agrarians. I think that if the Diggers are to be include then there needs to be a reliable source that says that Winstanley (who did base his view from selectively reading the Bible) was influenced by the Seekers. Without a reliable source anything else is speculation.
