Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the farewell sermons of the Bartholomean clergy. The farewell sermons demonstrate the extent to which religion remained a central consideration in the conduct of post-Restoration politics. This study has challenged several received wisdoms regarding the Restoration religious settlement and the origins of organised Dissent, as well as the simplistic preconception that historical significance must be imbued in structural change rather than language. The re-evaluation of the farewell sermons has also highlighted how much more we need to find out about the religio-political culture of Restoration communities, and particularly about the interaction between the centre and provinces with regard to the creation, reception and implementation of the Act of Uniformity.
