Summary of review 'Ruskin's Writings' - Review of Modern Painters III, Putnam's Monthly Magazine, May 1856.

According to this review Ruskin was accepted as an authoritative critic of art despite his faults (see here). The link made between Ruskin and Cromwell's army suggests contemporary perceptions of Ruskin as not merely a reformer of art (see here) but as a Protestant reformer.
