This article studies sermon culture during the Revolution. It first looks at Williamite preaching and shows that the advance of William and Mary to the English throne was one of the most severely preached events in Irish and British history. It notes that William made intense use of sermons to justify his armed advance to England and to legitimate his acceptance of James's crown. The article then looks at Jacobitism, the struggles Jacobites encountered under William and Mary's reign, and the formation of anti-preaching.
