About the Authors
  • First published in 1952, this book was based upon extensive close reading of the minute books preserved by the Protestant Dissenting Deputies from their inception in 1732 onwards. The group, also known as the Deputies of the Three Congregations, was made up of 21 elected laymen from the London congregations of the Presbyterians, Congregationalists and Baptists, having the express purpose of protecting the civil rights of Protestant dissenters. The text forms a historical study of the Deputies, providing detailed information on their role in the passing of legislation, as well as their place within the broader currents of British society. Appendices and detailed notes are also contained. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Deputies and the history of Protestant dissent.
