The Houses of Parliament

The Houses of Parliament

1812 – An act of Parliament in England required every person officiating at a religious meeting house to declare acceptance of scriptures as the divine rule of doctrine and practice. Courts had eroded the rights outlined in the Toleration Act of 1799, and the new act was designed to clarify the position of Dissenters, allowing them to preach undisturbed as long as they complied with this requirement.
