Huntington and Matilda’s suffering at the hands of abusive power might be thought to link this two-part work to the elect nation plays. And, indeed, the association of sixteenth-century earls of Huntington with the Puritan cause, the play’s sharp anti-clericalism, and its celebration of a virtuous fugitive band has suggested an appeal to Protestant Nonconformists (Bevington 1968: 295–6). But, if so, that appeal would have been muted by the blackening of John’s character, the near omission of his conflict with Rome, and the identification of Huntington with Robin Hood, not a particular favorite of radical reformers.
