Professor Rupp looks at the consequences of the Revolution of 1688, including the Toleration Act and the schism created by those who felt bound in conscience not to accept the new monarchy. He asks how the alliance between Church and State affected the Establishment, and how party politics modified its attitudes and sought to silence its independent voice. He describes the life and worship of the Churches; the survival of intolerance despite the principle of toleration; the growth of the dissenting Churches, and the predicament of the Roman Catholics.

Industry Reviews

`these essays, so full of insight and scholarship, constitute an important work which no student of eighteenth-century religion can ignore' English History Review ` The liveliness of Gordon Rupp's comments as well as the portraits and anecdotes that fill his book are evidence of his own pastoral experience as well as of his extraordinarily wide and sympathetic reading' Catholic Herald ` He can also hardly fail to be touched, now by Rupp's own humanity and tenderness, now by the feeling for the eternities that pervades the book.' Journal of Theological Studies
