The Great Ejection of 1662 has been variously remembered by English and Welsh nonconformists in the 350 years since. But the process reveals a shift away from the issues of the mid-seventeenth century to first, a remembrance of suffering, and then a generalisation of the issues in terms of political freedom and liberty of conscience. Furthermore, the question of whether groups are prisoners of their collective memories or may be released to act differently by acts of mutual forgiveness is a pressing contemporary ecumenical issue. It is therefore suggested that historical sensitivity is an indispensable adjunct to effective ecumenical agreement.
