John Wesley (1703-1791) was an English cleric who lead a revival movement within the Church of England known as Methodism in the 18th century. After Wesley's death, internal schisms led to a splintering of the original faith. The rival Methodist denominations included the Wesleyan Methodists, Primitive Methodists, and United Methodists.
This collection contains copies of periodicals that chart the debates between and within these denominations: the Primitive Methodist Quarterly Review & Christian Ambassador (1887-1909), Holborn Review (1910-1919), and The London Quarterly Review and Christian Ambassador (1855-1919).
Primitive Methodist Quarterly Review & Christian Ambassador and Holborn Review were edited by Primitive Methodists. In contrast, The London Quarterly Review and Christian Ambassador was a Wesleyan publication.
