This article examines the anti-Jacobite sermons of 1715–1716 and 1745-1746. These political sermons can be viewed as successes in terms of their promulgation of mostly standard doctrine, in the absence of off-the-peg sermons such as the Homilies. However, at the same time the sermons proliferated across the country in increasingly diverse religious settings (dissenting chapels) and locales (provincial towns in Britain and the Empire more broadly), a more homogenous and uniform political rationale for support of the Georges continued to develop.
