Abstract

The Barebone's Parliament had probably been known by as many as any parliament in British history. Before it voted to call itself the Parliament of the Commonwealth of England, it was known as the new representative, the new assembly, and similar phrases. Is contemporaries refereed to it as the Parliament, the little Parliament, or the late Parliament; or, if the person was a royalist, as the so-called Parliament, the mock Parliament, or the mongrel Parliament. The name Barebone's Parliament was apparently of later origin, possibly after the Restoration. Later names also include: The Assembly of Saints, the Nominated Parliament, the Saints' Parliament, and the First Parliament of the Commonwealth.
