Description

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

This manuscript includes two of Tennent's sermons, both of which, like the two sermons that precede them (De stando and De lumbis veritats circumsinctis), are ruminations on Ephesians 6:14. The first sermon also references Hebrews 10:23, "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised)."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1744, then delivered one or both again in 1749 and 1759.
