Hannah More

This chapter argues, against some other More scholars, that Hannah More remained a significant character into her sixties. She became ever more closely associated with the Evangelical wing of the Church of England and this is seen most clearly in her patronage of the Bible Society. She also supported the Evangelical petitioning campaign to open up British India to Anglican missionary work. She wrote two books in this period, Practical Piety and Christian Morals, both of them attacks on what she saw as Calvinist Antinomianism. Her home at Barley Wood, near Wrington, became a centre of Evangelical activism and sociability.
