    This special issue of the Bulletin of the John Rylands Library is dedicated to Peter Nockles. An expert on the Oxford Movement and the religious history of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Nockles was employed at the John Rylands Library from 1979 to 2016. During this time he extended his scholarly generosity and friendship to countless researchers. The issue features articles on a range of topics connected to Peter's scholarship and networks, including the Church of England (particularly High Churchmanship and the Oxford Movement), Catholicism, Methodism and Church-State conflict relating to the Church of Ireland.


    'Altogether, this is a volume wide in scope and rich in insights, well deserving of a place on the bookshelves of anyone interested in the theology, history, and trajectory of both the Anglican and Methodist traditions.'
    Mark Smith, Wesley and Methodist Studies

    'It is a fitting tribute to a much appreciated and long-standing contributor to the ecclesiastical history scene, and its editors are to be commended on its conception and birth.'
    Frances Knight, Proceedings of the Wesley Historical Society
