✹ About Thursday 14 June 1666 Harvey L on 16 Jun 2019 • Link Secular... yes. He goes to church on Sunday to see and be seen, and doesn't seem to draw any particular inspiration. When he says, "If God wills it..." that seems to be like we might now say "If fate wills it..." rather than any sense of being judged from on high. The convention of the day was to believe in God, so he acted as though he did. Unlike Evelyn who was an obvious believer.
