About this Item

In May of 1743 the Convention of Ministers, consisting of the "Pastors of the Churches of Christ in the provinces of Massachusetts-Bay," met to reaffirm the establishment Protestant religion and denounce the Great Awakening. On the occasion of this meeting their moderator, the Rev. Nathanael Eells, Congregationalist minister and pastor of the Second Church in Scituate, preached this sermon?which includes the significant phrase, "the one only living and true God; who is one in Essence, and three in Relations" (p. 8). This formulation in reaction to the Great Awakening characterizes the beginning of the Unitarian movement in the U.S., a movement which now seems very far indeed from anything this preacher would have foreseen. A fascinating item in the history of religious thought. 8vo (19.5 cm, 7.625"). [1] f., 43, [1 (blank)] pp. Evans 5173; Sabin 22006. Recent cloth-covered boards; a red leather spine label, gilt double ruled above and below with gilt lettering. 19th-century library rubber-stamps on verso of title leaf and bottom of p. 43. Light waterstain on title-page, occasional other light stains, overall remarkably clean. A nice, neat book. Bookseller Inventory # 3203
