Description

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

The front page of this sermon, which contains the title, is torn and obscures Tennent's wording. From the first lines of Tennent's text, however, it seems the title probably loosely translates to "The heart of a sinner is the palace of the devil." Tennent begins the sermon with reference to Luke 11:21-22.

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1750, then delivered it again in 1760.
