ABSTRACT
This article considers the way in which the publication of The Collection of Cases in 1685 promoted a new sense of unity between Anglicans and Dissenters. After 1662 Anglicans had persecuted Dissenters through penal laws, but the publication of the Collection of Cases marked a change in relations, especially among London clergy, who were keen to encourage Dissenters to return to the Church of England. By addressing the theological concerns, they made Anglicanism less threatening and more sympathetic to Dissenters. This was an important change in religious policy that played a significant role in uniting Anglicans and Dissenters in 1688 when James II sought to divide them, and when Protestant unity helped to lay the religious foundations of the rejection of his Catholic policies.
