World Methodist Museum Update

Following an agreement announced in April, the World Methodist Museum in Lake Junaluska, N.C., is sending its entire collection to Bridwell Library at Perkins. A portion of the collection already has arrived at the library in time for Aldersgate Day, the anniversary of John Wesley’s spiritual awakening on May 24, 1738. The remainder is scheduled to arrive in July. The addition of the artifacts to Bridwell’s already-extensive collection, coupled with two world-renowned Wesley scholars named as new Perkins faculty chairs, uniquely positions Perkins School of Theology as a center for Wesley studies.
