An Anglican theological paradigm was important in this period because Christianity was both sincerely believed and widely influential, and because most English people were Christian and Anglican. The empire and its inhabitants were understood through a series of theological motifs and the traditions of the Church of England. Anglicanism was imperialist in the sense of believing the English-British Empire in being connected with inequalities of power in the empire. But the empire was also subordinate to, and conditional upon, the English-British fulfilling divine providential purposes.
