Subject:        Rebellious Prophecies

Dear Colleagues,

I am trying to locate samples (preferably in verse) of popular
prophecies seen as seditious from the Peasants' Revolt of 1381 and Jack
Cade's rebellion against Henry VI in 1450, as well as anything of this
kind from the reign of Richard II. If they can be shown to have been
know in the sixteenth century, so much the better. Can any of you
suggest places to explore, collections I might not know to look for,
etc.? I've consulted most of the book-length literature on the
rebellions, I believe.

Thank you very much.

Frank Whigham
