William Kay (Bangor): ‘Christian history writing and writing Christian history: with special reference to Pentecostalism and the Charismatic movement’
Darren Schmidt (St Andrews): ‘ “Established” Evangelical church history at the turn of the nineteenth century: the historical publications of Joseph and Isaac Milner and Thomas Haweis’.
D Densil Morgan (Bangor): ‘Lewis Edwards (1809-97) and theology in Wales’.
This day conference, the second that CHF has held at St Deiniol’s, was an enjoyable and interesting day. William Kay talked in depth about the problems of writing Pentecostal and Charismatic history and some of the choices involved. Darren Schmidt compared the writing of historians who were contemporaries and rivals, and their different emphases in their understanding of Evangelical church history at the turn of the nineteenth century. Densil Morgan introduced us to the founder of Welsh Presbyterianism, Lewis Edwards.
