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! (:

Great Plague in London 1665
Great Fire of London 1666
Second Anglo-Dutch War 1665-1667
Third Anglo-Dutch War 1672-1674

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

Science and reason should be favoured over superstition and religious cant and dogma in terms of scientific investigation and learning.
