Wales modern period1

Wales -Modern Period

  • Beginnings of industrialization in Wales:

  • The first iron-works in 1757 in Hirwaun, south Wales.

  • The centre of Welsh culture and history shifts to the south-east, the iron works and then the coal industry.


Wales 2 modern period1

Wales (2)-Modern Period

  • Wales had by then (late 18th century and 19th century) become a non-conformist Protestant nation, largely Welsh-speaking (only) and for most of the population living in an industrialized environment (after 1860).


The methodist revival

The Methodist Revival

  • Key names: Howell Harris, Daniel Rowlands and the most prominent: William Williams Pantycelyn. (often just called Pantycelyn).

  • Methodism in Wales was a break with Anglicanism (not officially until the early 19th century). It was an evangelical form of Protestantism inspired by the works of Calvin.


The methodist revival1

The Methodist Revival

  • Pantycelyn was a great writer of religious poems (we would call them hymns) still popular today.

  • Another great eighteenth century Welsh religious writer was Ann Griffiths (1776-1805), who died shortly after childbirth at the early age of 29.

  • Following her death her hymns were written down by her maid’s husband. They are love-songs, full of vividimages and meatphors, reflecting a deep knowledge of the Bible and the beliefs of the Non-conformists (all the non-Anglican versions of Protestantism).


The methodist revival2

The Methodist Revival

  • By the nineteenth century, Welsh Nonconformity was no longer a radical force in religious terms, but rathera social force and institution that dominated Welsh all aspects of Welsh culture.

  • Religious leaders were now the leaders of society in Wales and they disapproved of the older folk culture of Wales.
