This chapter examines the origins and ideals of the greatest product of the postrevolutionary culture of moral and religious association and activism, the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge (SPCK). It highlights the ideological and political contradictions that exercised the SPCK during its first two decades, most importantly, its dual fidelity to Anglican hegemony and “Revolution principles,” demonstrating that the antinomies at the heart of the organization transformed an ostensibly bipartisan entity into a pillar of “church Whiggery”.

Keywords:   SPCK, Anglican hegemony, Anglican revival
