This study of the Jewish question was initiated as a result of a personal curiosity about the religious aspects in English life in the nineteenth century. England faced incredible political problems during this period because of her religious test. The aim of this paper is to indicate the nature of Jewish disabilities and to reveal the final settlement of this vexing problem. Conseqently, the major area of study involves the years 1830 to 1858. An additional chapter has been included briefly discussing the remaining disabilities which applied to Jews during the latter part of the nineteenth century. As result, it is hoped that the reader may better comprehend and appreciate one aspect of life in Victorian England.
