Summary
Christopher Tolley examines the writing of biography in four Victorian families: the Macaulays, Stephens, Thorntons, and Wilberforces. Their fathers had been members of the prominent group of Evangelicals and philanthropists known as the Clapham Sect, and their histories were shaped by a cultivated and demanding brand of Evangelicalism, which left its mark even when the parental faith was lost. The family biographers celebrate this common legacy, testifying to the success of the Evangelical movement in its campaign on behalf of domestic piety. Their tradition of biography is given fact and form by the wealth of documentation produced within Evangelical homes, to which later generations added their significant contribution
