Title
Revivalism Rejected: Protestantism in Sherbrooke During the First Half of the Nineteenth Century
Abstract
From 1812 to after 1850, British missionary societies made a concerted effort to establish a dominant presence in the largely American-settled Eastern Townships. As a result, the Church of England emerged as the region’s largest denomination, and the more radical American Protestant sects failed to gain a strong foothold. This development was particularly marked in Sherbrooke, despite the affiliation of the town’s American-born entrepreneurial elite with the Congregationalist Church.
