Dunc Wallace writes about John Wesley

Written By: Phillip Stone - Jul• 03•12

David Duncan Wallace was one of Wofford’s more prolific scholars and authors – both in the early twentieth century and throughout the college’s history.  Today, I’m sharing an essay he published on the life of John Wesley. For the two of you who don’t know who Wesley was, he was an Anglican priest and, more importantly for our purposes, the founder of Methodism.

No doubt Wallace, a Methodist himself and a history professor in a Methodist-related institution, felt that Methodists in South Carolina needed a short, readable yet scholarly treatment of Wesley’s life. So, he wrote and published this pamphlet. When we found it in Wallace’s papers, I decided to scan the text and create a digital edition. It’s available on our website for anyone to read and print.
