Adam Bede

preaching and women in Adam Bede

Does anyone know if it was typical for a woman like Dinah to be a preacher in 1799? At least in the Methodist tradition?

Yes, absolutely.

thank you for the reply janae - very helpful!

What caused the conservative shift against women preaching? It seems to coincide with the rise of slavery politics that brought about the Civil War. Is there any relationship between the two?


I'm sorry, I, don't have exact idea about this. But I heard about this.
