Wesley and Methodist Studies Publishes Volume One of a New Annual Series
The Manchester Wesley Research Centre and Didsbury Press are pleased to announce the launch of a new peer-reviewed annual series entitled Wesley and Methodist Studies (WMS). WMS publishes scholarly essays that examine the life and work of John and Charles Wesley, their contemporaries (proponents or opponents) in the eighteenth-century Evangelical Revival, their historical and theological antecedents, their successors in the Wesleyan tradition, and studies of the Wesleyan and Evangelical traditions today. Its primary historical scope is the eighteenth century to the present; however, WMS will publish essays that explore the historical and theological antecedents of the Wesleys (including work on Samuel and Susanna Wesley), Methodism, and the Evangelical Revival. WMS will be published annually and will a dual and broad focus on both history and theology. Its aim is to present significant scholarly contributions that shed light on historical and theological understandings of Methodism broadly conceived. Essays within the thematic scope of WMS from the disciplinary perspectives of literature, philosophy, education and cognate disciplines are welcome.
Although WMS volume one has been published through the support of the MWRC, WMS is now a collaborative project of the MWRC and The Oxford Centre for Methodism and Church History, Oxford Brookes University.
WMS is now accepting essay submissions for future volumes. For further details, including style notes for contributors, see:
