A great Wonder in Heaven, shewing, &c.

A great Wonder in Heaven, shewing, &c.

This brochure described how on a Saturday in the previous Christmas season, there had occurred at Keniton, Northamptonshire, "the apparition and noise of a battle in the air, a ghostly repetition of the conflict (the Battle of Edgehill) which two months before had taken place on the adjacent fields at Edgehill between the forces of the King and the Parliament". The alleged phenomena took place on four successive weekends; the King sent emissaries to report on it, and they were positive witnesses to the ghostly battle.
