(p.1) Introduction
Negotiating Toleration

Nigel Aston

Benjamin Bankhurst

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explores the historiography of the Hanoverian Succession and the centrality of Protestant Dissent in the party politics of the British Atlantic World in the early eighteenth century during the reigns of Queen Anne and George I. It argues that, taken together, the essays in the book represent a significant addition to scholarship on the topics of the Hanoverian Succession, party politics, and popular religion in the early eighteenth century. The combination of the volume’s tight focus on Protestant Dissent and nonconformity, and the sweeping geographic range covered by its contributors ensures that it will stand out as an authoritative addition to the scholarship of the early eighteenth century.

Keywords:   Hanoverian Succession, Dissent, Queen Anne, George I, Protestant nonconformity
