Abstract:
The Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts played an important role in the early religious life of colonial North Carolina. The SPG, chartered on June 16, 1701, sent Christian missionaries to the colony until the Revolutionary War. Between 1701 and 1783, about forty-six Anglican clergymen served in North Carolina. Sheppard discusses the role they played, the difficulties of procuring missionaries for the colony, and some notable missionaries from this period, including Richard Marsden. Sources for Anglican research are provided at the end of the article.

Abstract:
The famous Anglican minister George Whitefield’s visits to North Carolina and the town of Bath are described. Whitefield was famous for his passionate sermons and drew large crowds when he preached, but this did not happen in North Carolina. Whitefield visited Bath and the state several times and did not like what he experienced initially. Whitefield’s opinions of NC as a place with a “loose” lifestyle of dancing and entertainment and indifference toward religion is documented.
