Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

This manuscript contains two sermons. Tennent begins the first sermon, on cognition, by citing Proverbs 22:17, Hosea 4:6, and Proverbs 12:3-9. He begins the second sermon, on temptations by the devil, by citing Ephesians 5:6-15, and later Romans 8:6.

From dates noted on the manuscript, it appears Tennent wrote these sermons in 1744 or 1745, then redelivered one or both in 1747 and 1759.
