The crisis which Whitgift had engineered called for more: only a national conference could create the common front which would impress authority and public opinion with the gravity of the puritan cause. Chapman told Field that such a holy meeting is longed for of many. The battle for the souls of the moderate puritan ministry had now begun. The beneficed clergy were for the most part concerned to come to some sort of agreement with the bishops who would enable them to continue in their living, unmolested and without injury to conscience. If they, like the Sussex ministers, were permitted to subscribe while noting their objections to details of the liturgy, nothing would please them better. But such an accommodation was the last thing desired by the London conference, and by a sprinkling of extremists elsewhere.
