Some Things about The English Restoration Period?

I've been doing an assignment on this era, and I've been reading some things about it--but I can't seem to understand or find the answers to these questions ):

* What where the main historical events?
* What were the values and beliefs that characterize the era?
* Who were the Important people of the time?
* Some examples of art and literature from the English Restoration?

please help!!
thanks in advance! (:

Values and beliefs:

The arts should be more sexually explicit

Extravagance

Having fun

Women as inferior

Catholics were evil

The King had to be provided with a sufficient income by Parliament to 'live off his own'

Louis XIV was evil and a major threat

More religious toleration, at least as far as less extreme forms of Protestantism were concerned
