The Bible in the Nineteenth Century:
The Word and its Re-Wordings in British Literature and Thought

The Bible has played a significant part in British culture since the
Reformation. It has been a major reference not only in the field of
religious experience but also, more broadly, in artistic expression and
intellectual reflection. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the
Evangelical Revival placed the Scriptures at the heart of religious
practices and certain Romantics reasserted the importance of the Bible by
offering new readings.
