Evangelical Piety in England & Ireland, 1690-1850

Edited by John Coffey

  • Provides a new account of the roots and branches of evangelical piety, and offer fresh ways of analysing the history of Protestant spirituality.
  • Focuses on Puritan Dissenters, Calvinistic Methodists, Moravians, Wesleyans, Anglican Evangelicals, revivalist Presbyterians, and Evangelical Nonconformists.
  • Offers fresh perspectives on figures such as Isaac Watts, George Whitefield, John Cennick, the Fletchers, and the Ulster Presbyterian Henry Cooke.
  • Considers the sources of the new evangelical piety, including French Quietism and German Pietism.
  • Examines the controversies generated by the rise of Evangelicalism; the sense of selfhood and individuality generated by practices of interior spirituality; and the role of print as translated and edited by religious leaders and consumed by godly readers.
