This book investigates the part that Anglicanism played in the lives of lay people in England and Wales between 1689 and 1750. It is concerned with what they did rather than what they believed. Using personal papers, popular publications and church records, Jacob demonstrates that Anglicanism held the allegiance of a significant proportion of all people. He shows that early eighteenth-century England and Wales remained a largely traditional society and that Methodism emerged from a strong church, which was central to the lives of most people.
