Abstract for “A Question of Faith”

The book covers the history of religious dissent in Farnham, which is considered against the background of national religious affairs. 

There is evidence of dissent from the time of John Wycliffe in the early 15th century.  In the past dissenters formed a powerful force in Farnham and in England, and included many of the influential characters in the town’s history. 

After the restoration of Charles II, non-conformists continued to control the town and borough, and to play a significant role in the economic life of the area well into the 19th century.

The book has 126 pages, and includes 57 illustrations and an index.
