Revising the nationalist framework that has ruled a lot of the scholarship on Methodism in primary Canada, Todd Webb argues transatlantic standpoint is important to appreciate the method of cultural formation between nineteenth-century Methodists. He exhibits that the Wesleyan Methodists in Britain performed a key position in picking out the identities in their colonial opposite numbers via disputes over the that means of political loyalty, how Methodism may be ruled, who should still regulate church funds, and the character and price of spiritual revivalism. whilst, Methodists in Ontario and Quebec threatened to disrupt the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Britain and helped to set off the most important department in its background. Methodists on either side of the Atlantic formed - and have been formed by means of - the bigger British international within which they lived.
Drawing on insights from new study in British, Atlantic, and imperial heritage, Transatlantic Methodists is a complete research of ways the nineteenth-century British international operated and of Methodism's position inside it.
