The third volume in the stunning four volume Brief History of Britain series.
William Gibson is Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Oxford Brookes University specialising in the history of Britain in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. He has written widely on the eighteenth-century church. He is the author of James II and the Trial of the Seven Bishops and a biography of Bishop Benjamin Hoadly. He is also Director of the Oxford Centre for Methodism and Church History.
Praise for the author:
'Gibson's well written and well-documented account of James and the bishops will surely become the new standard authority on these "implausible revolutionaries" for many decades.'
