Nicholas Dixon

Nicholas Dixon is an AHRC-funded PhD student at Pembroke College, Cambridge. He is currently completing a thesis on the activity and influence of the Church of England from c. 1800 to 1837, with a particular focus on the Anglican clergy’s involvement in parliamentary politics, the National Society and the SPCK. His other research interests include British coronation ritual, the British monarchy from the eighteenth century to the present and the place of Anglicanism in the British Empire. Two papers which he has presented at EHS conferences have been accepted for publication in Studies in Church History, one on Queen Adelaide’s role in the extension of Anglicanism in Malta (published in 2018) and another on the political dimension of Anglican schools for the poor in the early nineteenth century.
