Calvinistic Methodism

The title was first given to those who in the eighteenth-century revival adhered to the doctrinal emphases of G. Whitefield.* It developed into a denominational differentiation with reference to the church in Wales which eventually emerged. More than twenty years before the conversion of either Whitefield or the Wesleys, [[Griffith Jones]]* of Llandowror had heralded the awakening in the principality with his evangelical preaching. He was soon to be supported by [[Howel Harris]],* [[Daniel Rowland]],* Howell Davies, and the hymnwriter [[William Williams]]* of Pant-y-Celyn.
