Although Wesley himself would remain a member of the Church of England for his entire life, the foundation of a new church in the nascent United States was necessary to keep the Methodist movement there alive. "Religion of the Heart: John Wesley and the Methodist Legacy in America" draws upon the Pitts Theology Library's extensive Wesleyana holdings and celebrates the legacy of Ms. Margaret A. Pitts. The exhibition looks at two aspects of the Methodist story: (1) its rise and development in England and (2) its establishment and history in the United States. All are invited to view the exhibition any time the library is open (pitts.emory.edu/hours). We are also pleased to offer tours. Tour groups meet at the library entrance. Please register at: http://pitts.emory.edu/exhibits/index.cfm + 3rd Floor Exhibition Gallery, Pitts Theology Library Campus Events
