Promoting historic links between Oxford Brookes University and the Methodist Church through archives, artworks, publications and research.
Simon Lewis, one of the visiting research fellows in the Oxford Centre for Methodism and Church History for 2016-17, has won a $1000 prize for his article entitled ‘”A Diversity of Passions and Humours”: Early Anti-Methodist Literature as a Disguise for Heterodoxy’ which will be published in Literature & History in May 2017. Simon contributed to the Special Divine Action project, organised jointly by Dr Dan O’Brien (Philosophy) and Prof William Gibson. The project involved six meetings with colleagues from Oxford Brookes and the University of Oxford to promote interdisciplinary debate on the nature of special divine action in the eighteenth century.
The prize was for the best article produced as a result of the project and was awarded by the Ian Ramsey Centre at the University of Oxford’s Faculty of Theology.
Simon Lewis is a doctoral candidate at University College, Oxford.
