John Wesley by William Hamilton

Methodism (from Greek: μέθοδος – methodos, “pursuit of knowledge”) is a movement of Protestant Christianity represented by a number of denominations and organizations, claiming a total of approximately seventy million adherents worldwide. The movement traces its roots to John Wesley’s evangelistic revival movement within Anglicanism in the 1740s. His younger brother Charles was instrumental in writing much of the hymnody of the Methodist Church.
