Religious diversity and ferment characterize the period that gave rise to Romanticism in England. Daniel White provides a clear and useful introduction to religious Dissenting communities and analyzes how Dissent shaped the work of William Godwin, Mary Wollstonecraft, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Robert Southey.


Introduction; 1. 'True principles of religion and liberty': liberal Dissent and the Warrington Academy; 2. Anna Barbauld and devotional tastes: extempore, particular, experimental; 3. The 'Joineriana': Barbauld, the Aikin family circle, and the Dissenting public sphere; 4. Godwinian scenes and popular politics: Godwin, Wollstonecraft, and the legacies of Dissent; 5. 'Properer for a Sermon': Coleridgean ministries; 6. 'A Saracenic mosque, not a Quaker meeting-house': Southey's Thalaba, Islam, and religious nonconformity; Conclusion.
