G. Whitefield* separated from J. Wesley* with whom he had been assoc. in the great revival of Eng. on the question of predestination and free will. Wesley was Arminian; Whitefield was Calvinist. The Countess of Huntingdon, interested in the religious revival of Methodism, took Whitefield under her special patronage and became responsible for organizing the Calvinistic Methodists, also known as Lady Huntingdon's Connection. Calvinistic Methodism is found chiefly in Wales, where it is known as Welsh Methodism.
