A scene from the Leben der heiligen Altväter (1482)

The Peculiarities of Methodist DoctrineAn Address delivered in the open Session of the Irish Wesleyan-Methodist Conference, June 19th , 1873

London: Wesleyan Conference Office, 1873

I have not yet located a copy of this talk, but it came at a crucial juncture in Pope’s project, at the same time that he published Winer’s Comparative View and was pondering how Methodism fit within the overall Christian world. The speech must overlap considerably in content with the later essay on “Methodist Theology” (1881), but the emphasis the title puts on “peculiarities” is a note that is more suppressed in later work.

There is a long, unsigned review of the book published in The Wesleyan Methodist Magazine (Nov 1873), pages 978-987.
