John Wesley

(1703 - 1791)

After he was ordained an Anglican priest in 1728, John Wesley hosted small meetings that focused on Bible study and social services. Derisive critics called those in attendance “Bible moths” and “Methodists.” Wesley was an early advocate of hydrotherapy, which became popular in the 1840s at the therapeutic spa of Vincent Priessnitz in Austria.
