Bishop Fell and nonconformity – visitation documents from the Oxford diocese 1682-83
Although the Compton Census of 1676 suggested that Protestant dissenters made up only a small minority of England’s population, most Restoration bishops were deeply concerned concerned about the problem of dissent. The documents in this volume relate to the attempts by John Fell, bishop of Oxford, to assess the extent of the problem in his diocese and to combat it.
