In the early nineteenth century, women, in particular, immersed themselves in the revival movements taking place in upstate New York. By turning to sources written by female revival participants, this presentation explores how women engaged in and experienced the earliest elements of religiosity; it contends that ecstatic and emotional moments were not the sole catalysts behind spiritual interest, and that these occasions did not justify nor constitute the beginning or the end of their conversions. Indeed, the conversion experience of these women extended chronologically before and after the revival.

Looks like a great lecture. Drink deeply there, then all students should come to the SLMSSA Opening Social in Salt Lake later that evening! Oh, and if you were just looking for another Mormon academic activity for your week, remember Jan Shipps’ lecture at the Salt Lake Library on Tuesday. I understand Paul Reeve will be giving opening remarks. Hope to see you at some of these great events!

    [1]Or stuck in a meeting I can’t get out of.
