The Alliance Between Church and State, or The Necessity and Equity of an Established Religion and a Test Law Demonstrated . . . 1736

In time it came to be seen as the classic statement of complacent Georgian Erastianism and a mark of the stable relationship between religion and politics in mid-eighteenth-century England.” (Paul Langford, A Polite and Commercial People: England 1727-1783, p.43-4.)
