MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation presents the character of the English Sabbath within Nonconformity from 1830-1860. The project argues that Nonconformists believed every Christian was required to practice a proper Sabbath. This study examines every available sermon and treatise produced by a Nonconformist during this era. The Biblical warrant for a proper Sabbath is examined in chapter two, a model Sabbath is described in chapter three, the blessings and curses associated with Sabbath observance is the subject of chapter four, and the enforcement of the Sabbath through legislation is the focus of chapter five.
