Methodism is a classic example of a movement striving for inspiration by a return to Christian simplicity, yet shaped by its need to fit into society. Its development has been illuminated by the historian of religion John Walsh. This volume complements his work, particularly by addressing questions raised by him in his accounts of Methodism in other countries and movements. Among the 14 essays are studies of Wesley and the Counter-Reformation; the Protestant mystic Gerhard Tersteegan (1697-1769); Edward Irving; and the 'Golden Age' of New York City Catholicism.
