New Charles Wesley Resources

Posted by David McEwan | Uncategorized | Friday 20 April 2012 8:35 am

Friends,\r\n\r\nThe Center for Studies in the Wesleyan Tradition, at the Divinity School, Duke University, would like to announce some important additions to our website to support study of Charles Wesley.\r\n\r\nFirst, we have just added a register that compiles all known records of Charles Wesley’s preaching, noting the text on which he preached whenever this is indicated. The sites for his preaching are also identified.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSecond, we have now posted the last transcription of all known verse that Charles Wesley left in manuscript at his death. The full set is now available here:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWe have also updated our transcriptions of all verse that Charles Wesley published during his lifetime, indicating in footnotes all manuscript predecessors for his published poetry. See:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe combined resources on these two web pages make available for the first time in one location a complete set of all known Charles Wesley verse. We have placed on each page a button for downloading the complete set of texts in a zipped file. By downloading both sets in a single folder, you will be able to do word searches on the full corpus (using a proper search tool as described in the set).\r\n\r\nFinally, Wesley scholars will want to browse the other indices and bibliographical guides posted on our page of “Wesley Studies Resources.”\r\n\r\nGrace and peace,\r\n\r\nRandy L. Maddox, Ph.D., William Kellon Quick Professor of Wesleyan and Methodist Studies, Divinity School, Duke University, Durham, NC 27708.
