Charles Wesley and the Struggle for Methodist Identity

Charles Wesley was a complex man in terms of his denominational identity and this ambiguity is reflected in the Methodist movement that he helped to found. Some of the keys to understanding Charles Wesley and his relationship with Methodism, the wider Evangelical Revival, and the Church of England can be found in a childhood shaped by a difficult environment and parents whose own denominational identities were a rich mix of Puritan and High Church Anglican tempered by influences from other Christian traditions. These same ingredients proved to be of fundamental importance in the making of Methodism.

Keywords:   Samuel Wesley, Susanna Wesley, Puritanism, Anglican High Church, Anglican Church, child‐rearing, dissent, Pietism, secular politics, monarchy
