Show Summary Details


This chapter looks at some of the ways in which history suffused the political concerns of Dissenters during the 1770s and 1780s. It examines several Dissenting historical works, and demonstrates their affinities to Dissenting campaigns and to bodies such as the Revolution Society. The chapter also discusses Richard Price's notorious sermon to this latter body in 1789.
