Calamy revised: being a revision of Edmund Calamy's Account of the ministers and others ejected and silenced 1660-2

Matthews, A. G. (Arnold Gwynne)

A history of the years 1642-62 which led to the catalogue produced in 1702 by Edmund Calamy, a dissenting Nonconformist containing the 2000 Nonconformist ministers ejected from Anglican benefices under the act of Uniformity of 1662. This attack on the Tory/High Church establishment was soon countered by John Walker's "Account of the sufferings of the clergy in the Grand Rebellion".;Calamy's lack of method, and of attention to detail, together with his Nonconformist views, laid him open to criticism that he had inflated the number of ejections. In the 1930s A.G. Mathews examined these claims and revised Calamy's list in the light of his findings. This book is reissued in conjunction with "Walker revised", Matthews reassessment of John Walker's work.;It is aimed at students of seventeenth-century political and religious history and of the history of Dissent as well as to local historians and to historians of the English church in general
