Finally, the experience of the people of the British Isles in the half-century after the political reformations is considered. The parish ministry in Scotland and England is compared, as is the use of churches, the nature of the liturgy and the practice of discipline. The text concludes with an attempt to understand what sort of Protestants emerged from the crises of the century.
