John Bunyan was born in Elstow, near Bedford, about 45 miles northwest of London, England.

Oliver Cromwell (–) Under Cromwell’s leadership, Puritanism and separatist groups became firmly established in England.

His book The Pilgrim's Progress was published in He also wrote several other books about religion, but The Pilgrim's Progress was the one that became extremely popular.

Because Bunyan did not have a formal education he wrote in a very direct style which ordinary people could understand.
