Revival and Revolution

(p.18) Chapter 1 Revival and Revolution
The Christian Monitors

Brent S. Sirota

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the Anglican revival of the later seventeenth century — the popular preaching, devotional writing, pastoral care, and charitable outreach that sought to restore the Church of England not simply to the English constitution, but to the hearts of the English populace. It considers the ways in which the broad-based and highly establishmentarian Anglican revival of the late Restoration period acquired a markedly oppositional character during the reign of James II. The threat of Catholic absolutism and religious pluralism lent notions of ecclesiastical renewal and reform a newfound urgency that would carry through the collapse of the Stuart monarchy and the Revolution settlement that followed.
