"We recognize instinctively the importance of the issues raised in the religious discussion of the Restoration era. The place of reason, the character of morality, the limits of authority, the nature of the universe, the reign of law -- these are all questions which we still debate. What is more, we discuss them in essentially the same spirit as that which first emerged in the latter part of the seventeenth century. The period of transition is the generation which followed the Restoration, and during those years the new lines of thought were marked out." [Introduction] The author's main concern is with the eclipse of Calvinism, the Cambridge Platonists, the religious significance of Locke, Toland and the rise of Deism, the relationship between the Church and the civil power and the question of religious toleration

"Religious developments in the later seventeenth century form, by common consent, a neglected phase of English history. Changes of many kinds affected the Church of England during this period. Regarding most of them I have nothing to say. I have deliberately restricted myself to changes in thought, and the subtitle of this thesis indicates its scope and purpose. I have said nothing about the organized life of the church, or about its government or liturgy. I have even avoided any mention of the change in the favoured style of preaching, though this is closely related to the thought of the Restoration period. I have not discussed the ways in which the ministry of the church was recruited, nor the question of the social position of its clergy. I have not attempted to assess the influence it exercised, though it is nearly a century since Macaulay pointed out that the pulpit was one of the formative of all forces moulding public opinion. The limitation to changes in thought has consequently been deliberate; only a self-imposed restriction of this kind could keep the study within manageable bounds. At the same time, it is necessary to point out that the thesis is not concerned with the history of religious thought in general, but only with those aspects of it wherein changes can clearly be discerned. Consequently, the relatively static forms of Anglican theology have been ignored. ..."--
