PhD title: Anglican and Baptists Together in Eighteenth Century Virginia
Supervisor: Dr Michael Snape
PhD Modern History


I am looking at patterns of settlement and activity between Anglicans and Baptists in eighteenth century Virginia, and how they related to one another with an eye toward how the Act of Toleration (1689) was applied in the Virginia Colony and its impact upon both groups.
