"The Call to Seriousness" attempts to examine the nature and the extent ofhe impact which the Evangelicals made on English life in the first half ofhe 19th century. Two men dominated the Evanglical world during this period:illiam Wilberforce who was the central figure in that celebrated group ofvangelicals, the Clapham Sect; and Anthony Ashley Cooper, the Seventh Earlf Shaftesbury, remembered mainly for championing the cause of factoryorkers. The author argues that the influence of the Evangelicals was, on thehole, a positive one. The Evangelicals alone did not make the Victorianshat they were. They did, however, play a considerable part in helping tostablish the peculiar temper of the age. Above all, Evangelicalism wasesponsible for giving the Victorians their famous seriousness andigh-mindedness.
