 Philip Doddridge (Nonconformist) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
His father, Daniel Doddridge, was a merchant, and his mother the orphan daughter of the Rev. John Bauman, a Lutheran clergyman who had fled from Prague to escape religious persecution, and had held for some time the mastership of the grammar school at Kingston upon Thames.
At a general meeting of Nonconformist ministers, he was chosen to conduct the academy established in that year at Market Harborough.
His popularity as a preacher is said to have been chiefly due to his "high susceptibility, joined with physical advantages and perfect sincerity." His sermons were mostly practical in character, and his aim was to cultivate in his hearers a spiritual and devotional frame of mind.

The Museum of Nonconformist Art is an exhibition, scientific and archive centre for studying and propagandizing nonconformist art as well as the contemporary non-commercial art of Russia, Europe and America.

In September 1687 James II visited Chester, when the nonconformists presented an address of thanks 'for the ease and liberty they then enjoyed under his protection.'

 Nonconformist & Roman Catholic Registers
It is important to remember that some of these 'dissenters' still considered themselves part of the Church of England and, in many cases they continued to use their parish church for the rites of baptism, marriage, and burial.
Some Nonconformists felt quite strongly that these ceremonies were not sacraments, which can explain the absence of early registers as they felt that they did not have any religious significance.

 Nonconformist Church History: Index
Although strictly speaking, the term Nonconformist means one who did not conform to the requirements of the 1662 Act of Uniformity within England and Wales, this site uses the term more broadly.
Included here are those, irrespective of their time in history, whose words or actions were in the same spirit as the Nonconformists - which is to say all those who believed that in matters of conscience, Christians are not subordinate to the civil authorities, but to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Some of the people commemorated at this site found themselves acting not only in contravention of the requirements of the civil authorities of their day, but also of senior figures within the church establishment whom they felt were not being faithful to Scripture.

 Nonconformist Church History: Bunhill Fields Burial Ground, London
Just off City Road in London, there is a public open space that is a haven of peace and tranquillity among the ceaseless traffic of the City of London.
Unlike Anglican Churchyards, this burial ground was not built around a church (though there was for a while a Dissenters' Meeting House nearby) but it was used as a Nonconformist burial ground because the land was unconsecrated.
Other themes can also be discerned in his hymnody, particularly his understanding that God was very much on the side of the Nonconformists - an attitude exemplified by his well-known hymn, "Our God, our help in ages past".

Nonconformist churches are by their very nature independent and voluntary bodies.

 Culture and the Nonconformist Tradition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Nonconformists, set apart from the Established Church, developed their own particular cultural practices and in so doing made a distinctive contribution to the culture of Britain as a whole.
These essays consider the development of chapel and Dissenting culture within the wider society, examining such issues as the emergence of the Nonconformist conscience, the place of politics in the pulpit, the contribution of women writers to provincial Nonconformity and the architecture of the free churches.
This fascinating and varied collection of essays goes beyond the usual boundaries of denominational and ecclesiastical history and interacts with broader trends in cultural and social history to demonstrate the significance of such matters as gender relations, politics and economics in any exploration of the relationship between Christianity and 'the world'.

From the scaffold of John Penry that legacy descended to the grand roll-call of celebrated Nonconformist preachers whose names are recorded in the religious history of Wales.
The structures erected by the Baptists, Calvinistic Methodists, Independents and Wesleyan Methodists in the country places are strikingly devoid of even the merest outlines of architectural beauty, and it appears as though those bodies reserved all their superfluous decorations for city and town Temples and Tabernacles.
The young Nonconformists seek fresh fields and pastures new, and adopt a novel and very composed method of preaching and delivery, which in their opinion is peculiarly adapted to hearers of to-day.

 Baltic Studies Newsletter #101-07
A large exhibition of paintings, works on paper and sculptures from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, entitled "The Baltics: Nonconformist Art During the Soviet Era," was opened on December 8, 2001, at the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
He also writes that there were nonconformist artists who worked in complete isolation during Soviet rule and who, unlike most of the other so-called nonconformist artists, boycotted all the officially approved exhibitions and artistic activities.
In his lecture at the opening of the Zimmerli Museum exhibition, Norton Dodge expressed the view that the nonconformism of the Baltic artists was an important factor that influenced artists in other Soviet republics and contributed to diminishing the importance of the communistic ideology and thus to the disintegration of the Soviet Union.
