The Joseph Bellamy House: The Great Awakening in Puritan New England

examines the life and times of the Reverend Joseph Bellamy (1719-1790), a preacher, author, and educator in New England. At the age of 20, Bellamy became the minister in Bethlehem, Connecticut. He and other ministers, spent most of 1741-1742 riding about New England preaching sermons meant to bring sinners back to the fold of the church. The movement, known as the Great Awakening, appealed particularly to working class people and spread throughout the northern and central colonies.
