This introductory chapter sets out the book’s purpose, which is to examine the Anglican revival of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. It traces the Anglican revival from its origins in the late Restoration period through its climax in the so-called Glorious Revolution of 1688–1689; its centrality to the reformist agendas that informed the ensuing civil and ecclesiastical settlement; and the permeation by its various social and institutional forms of postrevolutionary civic life in England. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
