Leadership roles for women in the eighteenth century Methodist revival, and in particular, female preaching
thesisposted on 2023-05-27, 17:18 authored by Schuth, Veronica M
This thesis examines and analyses the circumstances that led to women finding more opportunity for involvement in leadership roles in the eighteenth century Methodist revival and considers Wesley's changing views which allowed the evolution of female preaching. The pertinent period concerned is from c.1740 to c.1805 during which time women's involvement in Wesleyan Methodism reached its peak, particularly in relation to 'female preaching', and was summarily quashed by the introduction of a more formal denominational structure in the first decade of the nineteenth century.
