The Restraint of Preaching

(p.126) 4 The Restraint of Preaching
The Caroline Captivity of the Church

Julian Davies

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by describing Jacobean England during the early seventeenth century as the greatest evangelistic drive before the advent of the Evangelical Revival of the eighteenth century, when the thirst for preaching was deep. It explains that the reason for the royal reaction of 1622 was the threat posed to the king's authority by the wave of controversial preaching that swept the country following the announcement of the Spanish marriage plans and his overtures to Roman Catholics. The chapter discusses that ‘Considerations for the better settling of church government’ with Charles I were adopted and that these considerations constituted a radical programme to bind preaching to the liturgy and discipline of the Church. It then discusses seven Instructions that must be implemented in order to exercise the Considerations and describes the combination lecture and corporation lecture.
