A comprehensive work on extreme fringe Christianity in Britain and the colonies in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Meet the turbulent spiritual uprisings of the Seekers, the Ranters, the Anabaptists, Lutherans, Puritans, Quakers, Shakers. Christianity will never seem tame again. Barclay's huge volume presents a truly massive volume of Victorian learning, written in a readable, lively style.


London: Hodder & Stoughton. 1876. First Edition.


The Inner Life of The Religious Societies of The Commonwealth. Robert Barclay. 10.5" x 8". 700pp. Bound in publisher's original pebble grained purple cloth, with sunning to spine, cosmetic wear and tear to the cloth of the hinges, not affecting the stability of the book, chipping and fraying with some superficial loss to the spine ends. Nevertheless strong and handsome, a rather mammoth tome, inner hinges solid, internally clean with some light sporadic spotting mainly to prelims. Engraved frontis. with tissue guard. A very good, strong copy of a book that is not often seen, but when it is, it tends to show its age far more blatantly than this copy.
