The Christian's ABC: Catechisms and Catechizing in England C.1530-1740

Synopsis

This new work represents the first major study of the catechisms and techniques of catechizing used in early modern England, from the Reformation through to the Evangelical Revival. Catechetical teaching, especially on the Ten Commandments, covered all aspects of contemporary life and the book ends with an annotated list of catechisms which enables those with an interest in educational, literary, or linguistic history, or in political and social as well as religious history, to track down quickly works that could be of particular value to them.
