The Crisis of British Protestantism

Hunter Powell

Manchester University Press

One of the great problems of the Westminster assembly was not rooted in the debates with Congregationalists. As the debates over church government escalated, differences within the Presbyterians majority were revealed. These differences had political ramifications both in Scotland and in England. By analysing a pivotal debate over first debated proposition on Presbyterian government, we see a major realignment in ecclesiological parties that would change the complexion of ecclesiological debates for the rest of the Revolution.
