The Laudian Settlement of 1662

The following quote from the Anglican scholar Dr Robert S. Bosher is very perceptive about the Laudian rejection of the more thorough Continental Reformation:

"..the Laudian triumph resulted in a judgement of equal moment - that the Ecclesia Anglicana was of another spirit than Geneva... In the Elizabethan settlement the Reformation had been given a peculiarly English expression, and we may interpret the settlement of 1662 as an equally characteristic version of the Counter-Reformation."
