(p.403) Conclusion
The National Churches of England, Ireland, and Scotland 1801-46

Stewart J. Brown

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter recalls some of the important events involving the established Churches in Great Britain and Ireland. It reveals that many had looked up to the established national churches of England, Ireland, and Scotland. However, problems such as the failure of the New Reformation campaign in Ireland and the decline of the parliamentary State to invest additional public money in the established Churches forced church leaders to realize that they should function as a democratic and secular society; not as guardians of the national faith, but as societies of believers.

Keywords:   national churches, Church of England, Church of Scotland, Church of Ireland, New Reformation Campaign, secular society, democratic society, national faith, parliamentary State
