Hampton units out to revise our photo of the theological international of the later Stuart interval. Arguing that the significance of the Reformed theological culture has usually been underestimated, his examine issues to a community of conforming reformed theologians which incorporated some of the such a lot admired churchmen of the age. Focusing fairly on what those churchmen contributed in 3 hotly disputed parts of doctrine (justification, the Trinity and the divine attributes), he argues that the main major debates in speculative theology after 1662 have been the results of the Anglican Reformed resistance to the transforming into effect of continental Arminianism.

This research consequently offers an important bridge linking the Reformed writes of the Elizabethan and early Stuart classes to the Reformed Evangelicals of the eighteenth century. It additionally indicates that, all through its formative interval, Anglicanism used to be no longer a monolithic culture, yet really a contested flooring among the competing claims of these adhering to the Church of England's Reformed doctrinal historical past and the insights of these who, to various levels, have been ready to discover new theological avenues.
