Historians have long regarded the Church in the eighteenth century as corrupt and slothful. This careful and scholarly study reaches a different verdict.
After years of extensive research on unpublished material in the Devon Record Office, and in the archives of Lambeth Palace and the SPCK, the author shows the Church as not only highly organised, but as closely and actively involved with the society it served.
The roles of Dissent and Methodism are also discussed, and much of interest emerges about many aspects of social history. The book is for anyone seriously interested in eighteenth century life, whether in Devon or England as a whole.
