John William Fletcher (1729-1785) was a seminal theologian during the early Methodist movement and in the Church of England in the eighteenth century.

First published in 1907, this text provides a scientific treatment of New England theology and American dogmatic history. Frank Hugh Foster analyses the eighteenth-century rise of the school of New England theology, which became the dominant school of thought in New England congregationalism and, as argued by Foster, a ?world phenomenon?. The chapters... more...

Perceptible inspiration', a term used by John Wesley to describe the complicated relationship between Holy Spirit, religious knowledge, and the nature of spiritual being, is not unlike the term 'Methodist' which was also coined by critics of Methodism during the eighteenth century in Britain.

This volume presents for the first time a complete English translation of all 99 Tamil Letters gathered and translated into German by the early Lutheran Pietist missionaries to India, namely Bartholomäus Ziegenbalg (1682?1719) and his colleague Johann Ernst Gründler (1677?1720).

Nicht nur in der breiteren Öffentlichkeit Westeuropas, auch in der Forschung ist die Auffassung weit verbreitet, Polen-Litauen sei im Jahrhundert der Aufklärung ein Hort des Katholizismus gewesen.
