Negotiating Toleration

Dissent and the Hanoverian Succession, 1714-1760

Edited by Nigel Aston and Benjamin Bankurst

  • Considers the complex interaction between religious communities across the British Atlantic world in consequence of the Hanoverian Succession
  • Divided into four parts, each touching on different aspects of the dissenting experience of the Hanoverian Succession and the transition to the Hanoverian era
  • Examines how dissenters navigated the uncertain times facing the country and empire in the 1710s and the ways in which they ingratiated themselves with the new regime in order to secure greater liberties for themselves
  • Reveals dissent's fraught relationship with other religious and political groups in the era of the Succession
  • Explores the broader international dimensions of the Succession by expanding the focus on the shifting fortunes of dissent in Ireland, Scotland, and North America
