Abstract

This paper examines the effect and influence of Moravian beliefs and practices on John Wesley and the Methodist movement. Wesley’s contact with the Moravians in America will be discussed as a critical period in the development of Methodism, representing both a physical and spiritual cross-roads, before considering specific elements of Moravian practice adopted by Wesley, tracing both their use within Methodism and attempting to situate them within a theoretical musical and theological framework.
