Indeed the struggle between faith and humility on the one hand, and politics and power on the other, are unresolved tensions in Anglicanism to this day. They are unresolved because the tradition lacks an eschatological vocation of humility and human frailty together with a commitment to living in the particulars of the social world. For Anglicans the relationship between the vocation of the crucified and the ‘powers’ of human society has been intensely ambiguous from a very early time. Political issues were undoubtedly at stake in the synod of Whitby in 664.
Bede notes that during the lifetime of Aidan variety of use was tolerated because of the respect in which Aidan was held. When Oswui opened the debate he began with an essentially political proposition. ’6 In the end Oswui decided the issue on the grounds that St Peter had been given the keys to heaven. ’7 Behind the religious language is the king’s undoubted awareness of the influence of Rome and the wider western Christian tradition. The king was making a decision with clear political connotations.
However, Methodism was by far the most subversive dissenting movement in the eighteenth century, because it was home-grown and politically loyal. The Wesley brothers claimed to be Anglicans, and to all intents and purposes they were. They experienced and promoted a form of religious life that could conceivably sit alongside the structured life of the national church. It was institutional matters that caused an organisational separation. In 1760 Methodist preachers are recorded as having celebrated communion, and in 1784 John Wesley laid hands on the ordained Anglican priest Thomas Coke as the Superintendent for Methodists in America.
