Memoir B), he remarks on Law’s contribution to the high-church component of Edward Gibbon II’s library at Buriton, where he began to read on his return to England in .  England and Switzerland, – emerged with the perception of a double threat: on the one hand, that of Rome, interpreting Christ’s consecration of the bread and wine at the Last Supper so as to make the church which administered the transsubstantiated elements an authority independent of any earthly ruler; on the other, that of the independent and sometimes revolutionary sects – whose brief military dictatorship after  was remembered with peculiar vividness – interpreting the gift of tongues on the Day of Pentecost so as to invest the congregations in whom the Holy Spirit moved with independence from all governing authority and sometimes all social and even moral discipline.

We can trace Gibbon’s initial progress towards the point at which he became a historian by viewing it in the context of English history after . The revolution (for so it was called)⁶ of that and the following year had been undertaken in an England recently re-Anglicanised, where nobility, gentry and clergy were convinced that the restoration and maintenance of the authority of a royally governed church offered the only way to bury the memory of the calamitous breakdown of sovereignty and governing order in the years of civil war and interregnum.

Suspected of affinities with the Nonconformists or dissenters who had left their benefices in , these conformists and their successors were often strong upholders of the authority of church and state both before and after the Revolution; but it was open to them to hold, or to be suspected of holding, views of the church’s nature which emphasised its social, practical and moral rather than its consecrated and spiritual character – views which could entail revaluations of what consecration itself was, and what Christ’s actions, mission and even person had been.
