This thesis examines and analyses the circumstances that led to women
finding more opportunity for involvement in leadership roles in the
eighteenth century Methodist revival and considers Wesley's changing
views which allowed the evolution of female preaching. The pertinent
period concerned is from c.1740 to c.1805 during which time women's
involvement in Wesleyan Methodism reached its peak, particularly in
relation to 'female preaching', and was summarily quashed by the
introduction of a more formal denominational structure in the first decade
of the nineteenth century.
