Originally published in 1912, this book forms part of a two-volume set on English Dissent between 1550 and 1641. The first volume concentrates on the historical development of Dissent and the various groups who agitated against the centralized power of the Church of England. The second volume gathers together a selection of primary source documents relating to Dissenter movements. Both volumes contain a comprehensive index and illustrative figures. Together these books provide a detailed introduction to the English Dissenters that will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of Christianity.
