Abstract:

A comprehensive account of the Church of England in pre-revolutionary America, written without denominational bias, Colonial Anglicanism in North America will serve for some time to come as a basic reference work on Anglicanism in the formative years of our nation and culture.

A history of administrative, political, religious, and theological developments in the colonial Episcopal churches both North and South, the study integrates social and political history with theology and sociology to give a full picture of the events of the day and their significance in the framework of colonial history. Woolverton has thoroughly researched primary and secondary sources, including letters and journals still unpublished.

In early chapters, he discusses the church in North America's largest colony, Virginia, in the seventeenth century, and then throughout the volume he traces the evolution of trans-colonial and transatlantic Anglicanism in both its high church and evangelical aspects.

Three major geographical areas receive detailed treatment: the Chesapeake Bay of Maryland and Virginia, the New York center with its spokes radiating to Boston, Albany, and Burlington-Philadelphia; and South Carolina society with its satellites, North Carolina, Georgia, and the Caribbean.

This book contains "a comprehensive account of the Church of England in pre-revolutionary America"...This book also contains "a history of administrative, political, religious, and theological developments in the colonial Episcopal churches both North and South and integrates social and political history with theology and sociology to give a full picture of the events of the day and their significance in the framework of colonial history" -- Bk. jacket.
