Bedford is known as the home of John Bunyan (1628-1688), author of The Pilgrim's Progress. After serving in the Parliamentary army during the English Civil War, he became one of England's leading Puritan thinkers, writers, and preachers. However, the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660 also made the Church of England the only recognized church in the country. Non-conformists were imprisoned, including Bunyan. During this time, he authored his famous works.
