Reviews

Β«...this book presents a new and fascinating thesis that places religion as central to our understanding of seventeenth and eighteenth-century politics and society. This is what makes this study of national importance and will be essential reading for those whose interests lay in these fields, as well as in the local history of Somerset.Β» (Daniel Cummins, Archives)
Β«...this is a rich and engaging history, which illuminates the changing fortunes of a fascinating town, as well as contributing to ongoing debates about religion, politics, and 'the Enlightenment' in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century England.Β» (Joanna Cruickshank, H-Net Reviews)
