This is the first detailed study of the operation of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion, an important group in early Methodism. Alan Harding explores how the Connexion developed locally; the identity of its preachers and their training; the religious and social origins of those who joined its congregations; and the relationship between central direction and local initiative. The book examines the Connexion's attitudes to the Church of England and also to Dissent, to whose revival in the later eighteenth century it made a significant contribution. It considers the Connexion's relationship with other sections of the Revival, and reflects on the doctrinal issues that divided it from Weleyan Methodism.Table of ContentsAbbreviations Map of the chapels of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion as given in the Plan of Association of 1790 1 Introduction 2 The Eighteenth-Century Religious Background 3 Selina, Countess of Huntingdon: Early Life and the Start of the Connexion 4 The Life of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion 5 Trevecca College 6 Doctrines and Divisions 7 The Connexion, the Church of England and Dissent 8 The Connexion in the Last Years of Lady Huntingdon's Life Annex A Students of Trevecca College Annex B The Plan of Association (1790) Annex C The Articles of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion Bibliography Index
