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 by Tennent. The first sermon, "On the dove," begins with reference to Canticles/Song of Solomon 2:14. The second sermon, "On Christ as the head of the church," begins with reference to Colossians 1:18, Ephesians 4:15, and 1 Corinthians 11:3.

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1748, then delivered them again in 1752, 1754, 1758, and 1761.
