A Revisionist View of the Eighteenth Century Usages Controversy
The objective of the present paper is to identify and categorize later Nonjuror eucharistic doctrine for the purpose of placing the later Nonjurors within the spectrum of eighteenth-century Anglican thought. This will be undertaken by examining in detail the writings of the Usages Controversy. The Nonjurors were those members of the Church of England who, after the Revolution of 1688, were unwilling to take the oaths of allegiance to William III and Mary II, since to have done so would have broken the oaths they had taken to James II.
