John Wesley is known primarily as the founder of Methodism, but his interests were not limited to religion and theology. His impact on the eighteenth century was profound. Wesley studies appear in the scholarship of many disciplines. The purpose of this bibliography is to bring together these writings about John and his brother Charles_both popular and scholarly works_in an organized and useful arrangement. The bibliography is arranged by format: books, periodical articles, dissertations and theses, fiction, drama, juvenile literature, poetry, and media, with a subject index. There is also a non-English section. This bibliography should be useful not only to persons studying Methodism and Wesleyan theology, but to anyone with an interest in the people and events of the 18th century.
