The Crisis of British Protestantism

Once it became clear that the assembly would settle upon a version of Presbyterian polity, attention was turned to accommodation. Contrary to current historiography, accommodation was made difficult because there were so many similarities between the Calamy Presbyterians, the Scots, and the congregationalists. In the end, accommodation failed, not because of congregational obstinacy, but because English clerical Presbyterians and Scottish politics rendered it impossible.
