Chapter Summary

The sermon rose to new prominence and controversy in the Pietist and revival movements of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This chapter focuses on first on Pietist preaching and sermons, predominately in Germany, and then looks to revivalist sermons in Europe and the New World. The emergence of Pietist renewal movements in the 1670s in Frankfurt/ Main under Philipp Jakob Spener and later elsewhere in Germany was not fundamentally directed at changing the structure of preaching and sermons, but the development of Pietism had long-reaching implications for the place and criticism of the sermon within the church. One of the most copiously documented figures of Pietist preaching is August Hermann Francke (16631727). The development of preaching and the sermon in the revival movements of the mid-eighteenth century shows clear parallels to Pietism.
