History of Baptists in Atlantic Canada

Designation: CHUR 7033

This seminar course will explore Baptist history in Atlantic Canada, stretching back into the eighteenth century with the founding of numerous congregations in the wake of the Wesleyan Revivals in Britain and the Great Awakening in the American colonies. The nineteenth century became the Baptists’ century in the Maritimes with remarkable growth because of revivals that significantly shaped the emerging “denomination”. A growing number of materials facilitate the study of the history and development of the Baptist churches including their doctrinal views, political involvement, social commitment, missionary activity, educational institutions, and church government.
