The trial of the seven bishops in 1688 was a signifcant prelude to the Glorious Revolution, as popular support for the bishops led to a widespread welcome for William of Orange's invasion. Their prosecution showed James II at his most intolerant, and threatened the only institution for which most English people felt more loyalty than the monarchy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'...a refreshing work...' - Sybil Jack, Journal of Religious History

'Gibson's well written and well-documented account of James and the bishops will surely become the new standard authority on these "implausible revolutionaries" (20) for many decades.' - Barbara Brandon Schnorrenberg, Anglican and Episcopal History
