This chapter on law and religion begins with a discussion of Utilitarianism and Evangelicalism as the two competing and complementary social, political, and economic working ideologies in the 19th century. It then discusses crime and punishment, enforcing the law of Christian morality, Christianity and the political and economic status quo, legislating for social compassion and progress, and the dismantling of the Established church's privileges.
