of 1736. Charles became an able preacher, and co-

Wesley, (Rev. JOHN,) an English nonconformist
minister, born about 1636, was the father of Samuel

which he preached at Preston and other places, and
was persecuted by imprisonment. Died about 1670.

Wesley, (JOHN,) a distinguished religious reformer f
the founder of the Society of Methodists, was born at
Epworth, in Lincolnshire, England, on the 1 7th of June,
1703. He was the second son of Samuel Wesley, noticed
below, and Susannah Annesley. At an early age he
was sent to the Charter-House, from which he passed
in 1720 to Christ Church, Oxford. He was distinguished
at college for his attainments, and especially for his skill
in logic. His mother, who was a very intelligent woman,
and understood Greek and Latin, advised him to make
religion the business of his life. He applied himself to
the study of religion, began to change the form of his
conversation, and was deeply impressed by the perusal
of Jeremy Taylor's "Holy Living and Dying." He was
ordained a deacon in 1725, graduated as M.A. in 1726,
end was elected a Fellow of Lincoln College about that
date. He began about 1726 to record his actions,
thoughts, and experience in a diary, which he continued
to the end of his life. Eight months after his election
to a fellowship he was appointed Greek lecturer and
moderator of the classes. He was employed as curate
of his father at Wroote about two years, at the end of
which he was summoned to return to Lincoln College.
While he held the curacy at Wroote, he was ordained a
priest of the established Church, (1728.) On his return
to Oxford he found that his brother Charles and several
other students had associated together for religious
improvement, and by their strict and methodical habits
had obtained the name of Methodists. They were also
called, in derision, Bible Moths, the Godly Club, and
Bible Bigots. James Hervey, author of the "Medi-
tations," and George Whitefield were members of this
society, which recognized John Wesley as its directing
head. "The good intentions of Wesley and his asso-
ciates," says Southey, "could not be questioned; but
they were now running fast into fanaticism." By hard
study, fasting, and habits of austerity, he had reduces
himself to an alarming physical condition ; but, having
put himself under the direction of medical men, he soon
recovered his health.

In October, 1735, John and Charles Wesley accepted
an invitation to go to Georgia, to preach to the Indians
and the settlers of a colony which General Oglethorpe
had planted there. Among their fellow-passengers in
the voyage to Georgia were twenty-six Moravians, whose
simplicity and piety made a favourable impression on
Wesley. They arrived at Savannah in February, 1736.
As a preacher, John Wesley was not very popular
at Savannah. " He drenched his parishioners," says
Southey, "with the physic of an intolerant discipline."
He became intimate at Savannah with Sophia Causton,
the daughter of a magistrate at that place, and was in-
clined to marry her, but he was dissuaded by the elders
of the Moravian Church, with whom he was on intimate
terms. She afterwards married a Mr. Williamson, and
Wesley excluded her from the communion. For this act
her husband prosecuted him, and numerous persons
conspired to drive him from the colony. He departed
from Savannah in December, 1737, and arrived in Eng-
land in February, 1738. About this date he recorded
his conviction that " I, who went to America to convert
others, was never myself converted to God."

WESLEY

IVESSEL Y



Soon after his return he met with Peter Boehler, a
Moravian, who, according to Southey, "became Wes-
ley's teacher." "By him," says Wesley, "in the hands
of the great God, I was clearly convinced of unbelief,
of the want of that faith whereby alone we are saved."
He dated his conversion on the 24th of May, 1738. In
the summer of that year he visited the Moravian brethren
at Herrnhul, and became acquainted with Count Zinzen-
dorf. Having returned to England, he followed the ex-
ample of Whitefield (who was then his fellow-labourer)
by preaching in the open air at Bristol, where the foun-
dations of the society of Methodists, as an independent
sect, were laid. He continued to profess the doctrines
of the Church of England after he ceased to conform to
its discipline. A difference between Wesley and the
Moravians resulted in a formal separation in 1740.
About 1741 he ceased to have fellowship with White-
field, in consequence of a disagreement on the doctrine
of predestination, which Wesley rejected with great
earnestness. They exchanged a number of letters on
this fertile topic of dispute. The respective followers
of Wesley and Whitefield then formed themselves into
separate organizations. " No founder of a sect or order,
no legislator, ever understood the art of preserving his
authority more perfectly than Wesley." (Southey, "Life
of Wesley.") " His restless spirit," says Southey, "had
now found its proper sphere, where it might move un-
controlled and enjoy a prospect boundless as his desire
of doing good, the ambition which possessed him." He
became an itinerant preacher, and adopted the system
of itinerancy. By this practice, combined with that of
field-preaching, he and his fellow-workers obtained free
access to the lower classes. Another innovation of
Wesley was the employment of laymen as preachers.
Applicants for membership were not required to sub-
scribe any creed or formula.

Wesley performed his mission with the greatest zeal,
and with entire devotion to the cause which formed the
great object of his life. He usually travelled on horse-
back, and very often preached several sermons in a day.
His biographers, Coke and Moore, express the belief
that "there could not be an instance found, during the
space of fifty years, wherein the severest weather hin-
dered him even for one day." Field-preaching was at
that time a dangerous service, and, in certain districts,
was frequently interrupted by mobs, which some of
the clergy encouraged and the magistrates did no:
restrain. In a few instances Wesley himself barely
escaped being killed. But these persecutions, far from
daunting his courage or abating his zeal, seemed only
to confirm him in the great work to which he had con-
secrated his life.

About 1750 he married a widow named Vizelle, who
possessed an independent fortune, but he took care that
it should be settled on herself. But the marriage was
not happy. She annoyed him by her jealousy, opened
his letters, revealed his secrets, and ran away from him
.several times. A final separation between him and his
wife took place in 1771.

Wesley published, besides many religious tracts, a
work called "Primitive Physic, or an Easy and Natural
Method of Curing most Diseases," and a " History of
England." His collected works were published, in 32
vols. 8vo, in 1774. He was favoured with a vigorous
constitution and a rare activity of spirit, which was not
impaired by old age. "Ten thousand cares," he said,
"were no more burden to his mind than ten thousand
hairs were to his head." He had no children. He died
in London in March, 1791.

Since the days of the apostles to the present time,
probably few, if any, religious teachers have been instru-
mental in effecting more good than John Wesley. A3
no hardships or dangers were too great for him to under-
take in the cause of Chr-st, so no portion of humam:y,
from the highest to the lowest, was beyond the scopf of
his all-embracing Christian zeal and sympathy. He not
only sought with particular care to gather into the fold
of Christ the lowest classes of the poor, but he was
among the first to see and feel the iniquity of African
slavery and to labour for its overthrow. The society
which he founded, and which owes in a great measure



its efficiency and its influence to the system which he
organized, embraces at present, in Europe and America,
nearly three millions of souls.

poet, born at Preston about 1664, was the father of John
Wesley, the founder of Methodism. He was educated at
Exeter College, Oxford, and became a curate in London,
In 1688 he preached a sermon against King James's
Declaration of Indulgence. According to some writers,
he wrote a book in defence of the revolution of ifiSS, and
was rewarded with the living of Epworth, in Lincoln-
shire. He published, besides other poems, " Elegies on
Queen Mary and Archbishop Tillotson," (1695,) and

Wesley, (SAMUEL,) a teacher and poet, born about
1692, was a son of the preceding. He was educated at
Oxford, took holy orders, and was usher of Westminster
School for many years. His preferment in the Church
was probably hindered by his zealous support of the
Tory party, or his intimacy with Atterbury and other
Jacobites. He became head-master of Tiverton School
in 1732. He wrote a number of poems, which have
some merit. Died in 1739.

Died in 1837.

sometimes called GANSEFORT or GOESEVORT, a Dutch

he acquired a high reputation for his knowledge of
philosophy and divinity. He was also surnamed MA
CISTER CONTRADICTIONUM, ("Master of Contradic-
tion,") from his skill in dialectics. He attacked with,
great boldness the prevailing abuses in the Catholic
Church, and was one of the principal Reformers before
the time of Luther. He died in 1489, leaving a numbei
of treatises in Latin, some of which were burnt as
heretical.
