Benjamin Keach and the Development of Baptist Traditions in Seventeenth-Century England
Copeland, David A.


This study traces one of the major groups of English religious dissenters by studying the life and controversies surrounding one of the group’s principal figures. As the acknowledged leader of Baptists from around 1675 to his death in 1704, Keach helped establish many of the theological positions of Baptists. His greatest accomplishment was the reintroduction of congregational hymn singing among English Protestants. This look at Baptists and dissenters of 17th century England is based in Keach’s thirty-five books and pamphlets as well as the writings of those who opposed him.
