Samuel Chandler

Dates: 1693-1766
Chandler was an important dissenting voice against the Church of England. His bookselling business was an outlet for publishing sermons and theological works, both his own and others', that were part of a dialogue between the Church of England, the Catholic Church, and other dissenters.
