Overview

After decades of neglect there has recently been a resurgence of interest in the history of the Church of England in "the long eighteenth century." This volume of essays brings together the fruits of some of this research, and reflects the diversity of approaches to the study of the Church of England in the eighteenth century. As a whole, the volume demonstrates that religion and the Church can no longer be regarded as a discrete subject in the history of eighteenth-century England, but are central to a full understanding of its life and thought.
