On Sunday, October 25 at 4 PM the MIddlesex County Museum and Historical Society will sponsor a zoom lecture on the Great Awakening and Middlesex County.
The Great Awakening was a mid-18th century American religious revival that was a part of a broader revival in Protestant churches in Germany, the Netherlands, the British Isles, the thirteen American colonies, and South Africa. The Awakening had a lasting effect on the shape of American life. Historians have long argued, for example, that it led to religious pluralism, shaped the character of African-American religion, cemented the common identify of the thirteen colonies as distinct from British colonies in Canada and the Caribbean, and contributed to the American Revolution.
The Rev. Dr. Robert W. Prichard will deliver a zoom lecture on the Awakening and its effects on Middlesex County on Sunday, October 25 at 4 PM. Bob is the Arthur Lee Kinsolving Professor Emeritus of Christianity in America at the Virginia Theological Seminary, the former president of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church, and the author or editor of ten books.
