At a time of growing interest in the relationship between religion and politics this essay focuses on the responses of a number of high-profile evangelicals to the revolutionary events of 1848. Most of the figures discussed here were key actors in the Revival and were all linked with the pan-denominational Evangelical Alliance, established in London in 1846. The views and attitudes of German Lutherans and Reformed pastors as well as Irish and British Free Church clergy are considered in a comparative manner, revealing significant regional and theological differences of opinion and approach.
