'... the resulting book is a masterly and highly impressive work ... Dr Spaeth's achievement lies in unearthing a wealth of information which, when carefully interpreted, permits him to view parish religion from the pews rather than, as is so often the case, from just the pulpit. Overall, this is a thoroughly scholarly and absorbing study which moves deftly from an analysis of specific examples to an elucidation of general themes.' History 'Spaeth is a master of ecclesiastical and legal records, which he deploys in the creation of often compelling, and never less than telling narratives ... More studies of this kind are sorely needed if the confessional complexity of the long eighteenth century is properly to be appreciated for the dynamic and largely integrative force it was.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History '... an extremely impressive study of parish Anglicanism ...' The Historical Journal
