Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the scribal and printed circulation of the farewell sermons of the departing Bartholomean clergy, outlining the putative chronology of the translation of the Bartholomean manuscripts into print and examining how and why specific preachers came to be selected for publication. It evaluates whether Restoration authorities were successful in repressing circulation and argues that the natural disasters of 1665 and 1666 helped ensure that publication of the farewell sermons would not resume until the eighteenth century.

Keywords: farewell sermons; scribal circulation; printed circulation; Bartholomean clergy; Restoration authorities; natural disasters
