Lord Dartmouth (4): Epilogue and Bibliography

Epilogue

Hopefully, this research project has demonstrated the necessity of doing a deeper study into Dartmouth’s important role in the Evangelical Revival. It is to be lamented that little of Dartmouth’s role in this regard has been covered. Much more work could be done with respect to Dartmouth’s patronage of clergymen, especially trying to come up with a comprehensive list of everybody he supported and their own respective influence on evangelicalism. It could further be examined how much Dartmouth and Huntingdon worked together. More work could also be done regarding Dartmouth’s own beliefs. Did he ever change his stance on slavery? How did he exactly balance his view of the Established Church and radical Evangelicalism? Why was he not a Wilberforce in doing parliamentary work for the evangelical cause?

Lord Dartmouth’s importance to the Evangelical Revival is not something to be overlooked in the broader history of Evangelicalism. Indeed, this research project has endeavoured to demonstrate that Dartmouth was heavily involved in the promotion of Evangelicalism, through patronage and influence. It has desired to show that he was an important link in the broad evangelical networks with special emphasis on his importance in the Huntingdon network. No one can deny that Dartmouth took his Evangelicalism seriously as is evidenced by the many letters that he wrote to other evangelicals and the letters he received from members of the clergy. His commitment to Evangelicalism is further seen in his labours in the government of the British Empire. His policy making is marked by a character of piety and diligence, though it never achieved Dartmouth’s desired outcome: conciliation. Therefore, in conclusion, Dartmouth’s role in the Evangelical Revival is not only broad and varied but also important for understanding how the 18th Century revival functioned and managed to be so influential in Britain and the Americas.
