Religion in Romantic England explores the ways thattheliterature of English Christianity shaped the social, cultural, political, and religious life of the nationin texts published between 1760 and 1832. From the accession of George III and the expansion of Methodism in the late eighteenth century to the Reform Bill and the beginning of the Oxford Movement of the early nineteenth, this anthology revealshow theological ideas and ecclesial movements influenced one of the most widelystudiedperiods in English literature and history. These tumultuous decades brought religious revival in evangelical preaching and spirituality, controversial responses to the French Revolution, the abolition of the slave trade, the struggle over Roman Catholic emancipation, the proliferation of missionary societies, and intellectual battles over the nature of God, the Bible, faith, church authority, and religious pluralism. Religious writers in the Romantic period range from poets and preachers to pamphleteers and theologians. In ten thematic chapters tracing pivotal developments in belief and practice, Religion in Romantic England guidesreadersinunderstandingthe major historical and theological issues that contributed to the literary, educational, and political movements of theera. These judicious selections, drawn from a diverse body of luminariesâincluding William Carey, Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, Joseph Priestley, Hannah More, Percy Shelley, and William Wilberforce, among many othersâintroduce newcomers and established readers alike to the ideas, controversies, and hopes that continue to affectour common life to this day.
