Publisher's Description

The Oxford History of Anglicanism is a major new and unprecedented international study of the identity and historical influence of one of the world's largest versions of Christianity. This global study of Anglicanism from the sixteenth century looks at how was Anglican identity constructed and
contested at various periods since the sixteenth century; and what was its historical influence during the past six centuries. It explores not just the ecclesiastical and theological aspects of global Anglicanism, but also the political, social, economic, and cultural influences of this form of
Christianity that has been historically significant in western culture, and a burgeoning force in non-western societies today. The chapters are written by international exports in their various historical fields which includes the most recent research in their areas, as well as original research.
The series forms an invaluable reference for both scholars and interested non-specialists.

Volume two of The Oxford History of Anglicanism explores the period between 1662 and 1829 when its defining features were arguably its establishment status, which gave the Church of England a political and social position greater than before or since. The contributors explore the consequences for
the Anglican Church of its establishment position and the effects of being the established Church of an emerging global power. The volume examines the ways in which the Anglican Church engaged with Evangelicalism and the Enlightenment; outlines the constitutional position and main challenges and
opportunities facing the Church; considers the Anglican Church in the regions and parts of the growing British Empire; and includes a number of thematic chapters assessing continuity and change.

Editorial Reviews


"This multi-authored volume provides a very useful summation of the extensive renewal of research and scholarship on the eighteenth-century Church that has occurred in recent decades. Its major contribution is to build on studies of England itself to provide a rounded picture of the wider Anglican
world in this, its early formative period." -- John Wolffe, Journal of Ecclesiastical History


"This volume should prove invaluable to anyone seeking to understand the complexities of the Church of England in the Long Eighteenth Century Church, and should go a long way toward overturning the charge that the church of this period was lifeless and uninteresting." -- Robert D. Cornwall, Reading
Religion


"This series represents the most comprehensive study of Anglicanism to date. This series will take its place as a vital resource for scholarship and will serve as a milestone in the development of Anglican studies ... it is an extraordinary resource. It synthesizes a wide range of scholarship on
Anglicanism. It ought to be the first point of reference for research on any aspect of Anglican history ... This is a collection that belongs in every library dedicated to the study of history and religion." -- Daniel Joslyn-Siemiatkoski, Anglican and Episcopal History


"...superb...In [the] course of this thoroughly enjoyable volume there are many arresting glimpses to be had of a church hard at work according to its lights and of its time." -- Paul Avis, Durham University and University of Exeter
