‘Great Awakening’ lecture to be held virtually Oct. 25

The Middlesex County Museum and Historical Society will sponsor a Zoom lecture on the Great Awakening on Sunday, Oct. 25 at 4 p.m. The Rev. Dr. Robert W. Prichard will speak on “The Great Awakening and its Effects on Middlesex County.”

The Great Awakening was a mid-18th century American religious revival that was a part of a broader revival in Protestant churches in Germany, the Netherlands, the British Isles, the thirteen American colonies and South Africa. The Awakening had a lasting effect on the shape of American life.

Prichard is the Arthur Lee Kinsolving Professor Emeritus of Christianity in America at the Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria. He is the former president of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church. A question and answer period will follow the lecture.
