In England, a shift in political discourse from monarchical sovereignty to parliamentary sovereignty and finally to popular sovereignty can be described in the first half of the seventeenth century. The Levellers, however, could not prevail with their approaches. The realization of democracy required far-reaching constitutional foundations and procedural preconditions, such as the safeguarding of individual and collective rights of freedom, the separation of powers, the rule of law, democratic electoral and rotation procedures, and so on. The debates presented here mark this path. At the same time, they mark a clear demarcation from the republican discourse of the time.
