Savoy Conference

Categories: Religion

Event

This conference was held at the Savoy Palace after the restoration of Charles II and was attended by 12 Anglican bishops and 12 Puritan ministers, each side having 9 assistants. It was an attempt to reconcile differences between them, in particular revisions for the Book of Common Prayer. Following this conference the majority of Puritans defected from the Church of England so the conference cannot be counted a big success.
