This chapter explores a flavour of one aspect of John Clare's faith, which, like all other aspects, forms part of his quotidian experience: his confidence in superstitions and 'alternative beliefs'. The rhetoric of the Evangelical Revival, the discourse of the sublime and the terminology of superstitious experience coalesce. The claiming of biblical sanction for ritual habits is a recurrent feature in Clare's writing. Taylor's response to Clare's conviction that he was haunted by malevolent spirits brings us to the opposite end of the belief spectrum: to those evangelicals in Clare's life who waged war against sprites and phantoms. Encompassing superstition was one of the most significant ways in which Wesleyan Methodism appealed to prevailing traditions, and thus increased its popular appeal. Thus the Church of England, unwillingly, and often unwittingly, certainly contributed to the survival of witchcraft and magical beliefs.
