Dr Hylson-Smith also covers the poetry of Herbert and the theology of the Caroline divines; and groups and movements such as the Nonjurors, the Hutchinsonians, the Hackney Phalanx, the Oxford Movement, Christian Socialism, Liberal High Churchmanship and Affirming Catholicism. Throughout, very considerable, complex and often unexpected material is analysed not only judiciously but with clarity and verve."
