Preview

William Nunn was the Anglican minister of St Clement's Church, Manchester, situated in an area of significant poverty. His ministerial response to the urban environment was shaped by the formative influences of Charles Simeon and Robert Hawker. Whilst espousing the high Calvinism shared by a number of Dissenters, his political theology owed much to his Anglicanism. Nunn's social concern was well developed especially in his work with Sunday schools and the rescue of prostitutes.
