Dissenting Praise

Françoise Deconinck-Brossard

Chapter 3 discusses the chronological, geographical and denominational reception and circulation of Philip Doddridge’s hymns. Drawing on close readings of the variants on a few representative hymns, the analysis outlines the textual instability that resulted from the dissemination of words and tunes not only through the international circulation of printed books, but also through multiple manuscript copies, lining out, plagiarism, and adaptation. Lastly, it assesses Doddridge’s place in the history of English hymnody, and concludes that his catholicity of approach explains the favourable reception of his hymns in his own Independent—i.e. Congregational—tradition, as well as among many other communities of dissent, in the Church of Scotland and in the Anglican communion, on both sides of the Atlantic.
