Synopsis: Much of the scholarship dedicated to the working-class culture of early twentieth-century Wales concerns secular, economic, and political matters. Relatively little attention has been given to religion, despite the fact that the 1904 5 revival brought many thousands into contact with the chapel. This study examines the relationship between the labor movement and the nonconformist chapels, tracing the emergence of a social gospel,? its main protagonists, and its eclipse by the outbreak of World War II.
About the Author: Robert Pope is a reader of theology at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Lampeter, Wales.
