It first describes the court sermons that were conducted and published during the reign of Charles II. It then moves on to examine the court preachers, Catholicism, and Protestant nonconformity. The article ends with a section on one of the most dangerous satirical and learned challenges to Christian morality and Restoration churchmen.
