Protestant Evangelical Revival

Hardback
This book studies the early history of the Protestant revival movements of the eighteenth century from a European as well as Anglo-American perspective. Professor Ward examines the crisis in the Protestant world beyond that established and protected by the Westphalia treaties, and its impact upon the morale of Protestant communities which enjoyed diplomatic guarantees or other forms of public protection. He traces the widespread outbreak of forms of revival to the emergence of a common Protestant mind, shaped by the appreciation of common problems. The religious effects of widespread emigration produced by persecution, war and distress are traced, and the chronology of the familiar revivals of the West is related to the crises of Eastern revival. The Protestant Evangelical Awakening is based on archival and published resources extending from Eastern Europe to the American colonies, and marks a major contribution to our understanding of the religious history of both continents.

- Publisher This book marks a major development in our understanding of the religious history of both Europe and North America during the first half of the eighteenth century. It studies the early history of the Protestant revival movements from a pan-European, as well as Anglo-American viewpoint, and shows the interrelationships and movements among the major Protestant communities. It is a contribution to the history not only of religious belief and practice, but also to that of the successes and failures of eighteenth-century statecraft in dealing with problems of religious excitement and division during an age of enlightenment. It is based on a vast range of archival resources and published scholarly work ranging from Eastern Europe to the American colonies.

- Publisher "This account of the Great Awakening is, in my judgement, a magisterial work. Its main achievement is that it provides an integrated account of the Great Awakening for the first time. In particular, by careful study and exposition of the links between continental pietism and North Atlantic revivalism, Professor Ward is able to show that the well-known meeting between the Wesleys and a group of Moravian Brethren while on ship to America, whilst in one sense an accident, was not some chance encounter between two different religious cultures, but a natural (and almost inevitable?) meeting....In short I regard this as one of the most significant books written on eighteenth-century religion. It will be a standard work of reference for years to come." David M. Thompson, University of Cambridge
