Some scholars contend that the 18th century witnessed the birth of the modern world; others argue that England remained an ancien regime confessional state. Robert Ingram takes issue with both positions and uses the career of the reforming Archbishop Thomas Secker (1693-1768) to look afresh at aspects of social and church reform, including the church-state alliance, and to argue that war rather than social, economic or cultural developments was the catalyst for change. No jacket.
