Benjamin Hoadly, Bishop in turn of Bangor, Hereford, Salisbury and Winchester, was the most controversial churchman of the 18th century. His sermon on the nature of Christ's kingdom sparked off the Bangorian controversy which raged from 1717 to 1720, and he was a committed Whig, and a disciple of Locke. This study offers a fresh appreciation of Hoadly's life and work in 18th century religion, but also illuminates the thought of adversaries such as Charles Leslie and Henry Sacheverell.
