Established Church, Sectarian People: Itinerancy and the by Deryck W. Lovegrove
By Deryck W. Lovegrove
This booklet examines a ignored element of English social heritage - the operation of itinerant preachers in the course of the interval of political and social ferment on the flip of the 19th century. It investigates the character in their well known model of Christianity and considers their influence upon latest church buildings: either the possibility it seems that posed to the confirmed Church of britain and the results in their task for the smaller Protestant our bodies from which they arose. the actual energy of the e-book lies within the broad use it makes of formerly untapped neighborhood records drawn from many English counties - documents which come with various parochial, criminal, associational and congregational assets. this can be a learn of faith in transition that is set opposed to the broader canvas of social switch attendant upon the early business Revolution and the political surprise waves emanating from France.
