Key philosophers such as Locke, Leibniz, Voltaire and Kant were all part of the movement. It was the Age of Reason. The implications of this intellectual current for theology have been enormous. Enlightenment thinking has been characterized by: U N D E R S T A N D I N G ANGLICAN IDENTITY • • • • 29 An emphasis on reason The importance of the natural order The idea of progress Rejection of the authority of both revelation and tradition This movement first of all influenced deists (belief in a nonpersonal supreme being) and freethinkers (more radical), but in time it also came to affect Christian theology.

In line with the tradition of the Elizabethan Puritans, many godly Puritan ministers were willing to accept this, albeit 'an imperfect book'. However, a Corporation Act also required an oath repudiating Cromwell's Commonwealth and supporting the royal supremacy. This was too much for even Richard Baxter, 'the reluctant nonconformist',25 and on St Bartholomew's Day 1662 the Great Ejection was completed with an additional 1,000 clergy, Baxter included, ejected from their livings. Yet, there were Puritan clergy who remained.

Tradition - set out here as the teachings of the ancient Fathers and Councils of the Church - is affirmed only insofar as such teachings agree with the Scriptures. The biblical doctrine as applied to the Church of England is asserted to lie in the formularies; the Thirty-Nine 40 ANGLICAN AND EVANGELICAL? Articles, the Book of Common Prayer and the Ordinal. These three are to be seen as in agreement with each other and all three as consonant with the Scriptures. There is no room here for claiming either the equality of Scripture and Tradition, or for claiming that Protestant Articles balance a Catholic Prayer Book.
