English author and philosopher, Bishop Thomas Burgess' career was concerned with advocating for the emancipation of slaves and evangelistic work among the poor. This book uses his life as a starting point to uncover the links between the academic, religious and social cultures of Britain, Europe and North America in the 18th and 19th centuries.
