The Colonial Period Culture and society in the 13 British colonies The increasing prosperity of the towns prompted fears that the devil was luring society  into pursuit of worldly gain and may have contributed to the religious reaction of the  1730s, known as the Great Awakening. Its two immediate sources were George  Whitefield, a Wesleyan revivalist who arrived from England in 1739, and Jonathan  Edwards, who served the Congregational Church in Northampton, Massachusetts. Whitefield began a religious revival in Philadelphia and then moved on to New England.  He enthralled audiences of up to 20,000 people at a time with histrionic displays,  gestures, and emotional oratory. Religious turmoil swept throughout New England and  the middle colonies as ministers left established churches to preach the revival.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
