The Clergy Club as the title suggests, looks at the disconnection that exists between the clergy and the laity in the Catholic Church, and the "club" mentality on the part of the Church hierarchy that underpins it. Many examples are cited that reveal an attitude among priests and bishops of elitism and aloofness, as well as the clergy's inability to see the world from the perspective of the laity, even with the best of intentions. Many questions are asked, such as "Where does this "club" attitude come from? How does it express itself? How is it reinforced by Church structures and theology? What was Jesus' approach to both clergy and laity? Why is Pope Francis so vehement in his criticism of clericalism? Some practical initiatives are also suggested as a way of bringing about change in the clerical culture, a change that would help to rid the Church of clericalism, and in the process bring the clergy and laity closer together.

This collection makes a significant contribution to the history of the Church of England in the period. Local and regional evidence from across the country illustrates the range of responses to a variety of problems and common themes. These include the church's relationship with protestant dissent and Roman Catholicism, its relationship with the laity, its social and economic position (which could alter during periods of economic change), and its response to and participation in a number of significant political and social events such as the Restoration, the Revolution of 1688, the emergence of Jacobitism, and reactions to the French Revolution. Although local variations could indeed be extreme, this does not mean that there was no common experience: much of the interest of this collection comes from the exploration of different regional responses to shared difficulties. It also sheds new light on the issue of national identity, and particularly the concepts of Englishness and Britishness as they existed during the period.Contributors VIVIANE BARRIE, JEFFREY S.

This book explores popular support for the Church of England during a critical period, from the Stuart Restoration to the mid-eighteenth century, when Churchmen perceived themselves to be under attack from all sides. In many provincial parishes, the clergy also found themselves in dispute with their congregations. These incidents of dispute are the focus of a series of detailed case studies, drawn from the diocese of Salisbury, which help to bring the religion of the ordinary people to life, while placing local tensions in their broader national context. The period 1660–1740 provides important clues to the long-term decline in the popularity of the Church. Paradoxically, conflicts revealed not anticlericalism but a widely shared social consensus supporting the Anglican liturgy and clergy: the early eighteenth century witnessed a revival. Nevertheless, a defensive clergy turned inwards and proved too inflexible to respond to lay wishes for fuller participation in worship.
