This chapter considers the farewell sermons as physical performances, whose prevalence and intensity demonstrate that religion remained a prominent feature in the Restoration landscape, analysing how these self-conscious performances were planned and orchestrated, and what the texts reveal about the relationships between the Bartholomean preachers and their various audiences. It discusses Michael Braddick and John Walter's thoughts about the term negotiation of power, and suggests that parliamentary legislation and political action at both local and national level impinged on the minds and actions of the nonconformist ministers, and helped shape the character of the farewell sermons.
