Anglican clergymen in Britain's Australian colonies in their earliest years faced very particular challenges. Lacking relevant training, experience or pastoral theology, these pioneer religious professionals not only ministered to a convict population unique in the empire, but had also to engage with indigenous peoples and a free-settler population struggling with an often inhospitable environment. This was in the context of a settler empire that was being reshaped by mass migration, rapid expansion and a widespread decline in the political authority of religion and the confessional state, especially after the American Revolution. Previous accounts have caricatured such clerics as lackeys of the imperial authorities: "moral policemen", "flogging parsons". Yet, while the clergy did make important contributions to colonial and imperial projects, this book offers a more wide-ranging picture. It reveals them at times vigorously asserting their independence in relation both to their religious duties and to humanitarian concern, and shows them playing an important part in the new colonies' social and economic development, making a vital contribution to the emergence of civil society and intellectual and cultural institutions and traditions within Australia. It is only possible to understand the distinctive role that the clergy played in the light of their social origins, intellectual formation and professional networks in an expanding British World, a subject explored systematically here for the first time. Michael Gladwin is Lecturer in History at St Mark's National Theological Centre, Charles Sturt University, Canberra.

Review:

Well organized, and packed with the sort of detail that shows how thoroughly the author has been prepared to follow up every relevant question that occurs to him. AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL OF POLITICS & HISTORY Michael Gladwin's excellent book offers robust correctives to some of the most entrenched stereotypes in Australian historiography...(It) is a model of how to reconstruct a particular milieu. STUDIES IN WORLD CHRISTIANITY (This) deeply researched and judiciously revisionist work...is a distinguished addition to (the) scholarly literature. CHURCH HISTORY & RELIGIOUS CULTURE Offers valuable insights and resources for other scholars investigating the influence of Christianity in British colonial societies. JOURNAL OF ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY (An) impressive volume - a model of empirically grounded critical history writing that deserves widespread and careful attention. It has major implications for our understanding of the character of the Church of England in early colonial Australia. AUSTRALIAN HISTORICAL STUDIES

Book Description Royal Historical Society. Hardcover. Condition: New. 224 pages. Anglican clergymen in Britains Australian colonies in their earliest years faced very particular challenges. Lacking any relevant training, experience or pastoral theology, these pioneer religious professionals not only had to minister to a convict population unique in the empire, but had also to engage with indigenous peoples and a free-settler population struggling with an often inhospitable environment. Previous accounts have caricatured such clerics - several of whom doubled as magistrates - as the imperial authorities lackeys: moral policemen, flogging parsons. While the clergy did indeed make important contributions to colonial and imperial projects, this book shows that they explicitly rejected the subordination of Church to state, vigorously asserting their independence in relation to both religious duties and humanitarian concern. The author also demonstrates the clergys vital contribution to the evolution of the new colonies in their economic development, and in the emergence of civil society and distinctive intellectual and cultural institutions and traditions. The clerical contribution was shaped by their social origins, intellectual formation and professional networks in an expanding settler empire, explored systematically here for the first time. What emerges is a much more nuanced understanding of the place of the Anglican Church in the history of colonial Australia than has previously been presented, shedding important new light on the religious, social and political history of both Australia and the British World of which it formed a part.
