(p.242) Conclusion
The Crisis of British Protestantism

Hunter Powell

Manchester University Press

Whereas this book began with alliance, it ended with a breakdown of the major ecclesiological parties of the Puritan Revolution. When faced with the variety polities within their own ranks, for political reaons, the Scotts and the Calamy Presbyterians recognized it was more expedient to find accomodation within the variegated presbyterian parties than to find an accommodation with the congregationalists. Taken from a thirty year perspective we see that the assembly actually stands as unique moment of discord within the major ecclesiological parties, that worked together both before and after the Westminster assembly.
