There have been several awakenings or revivals since the Reformation; each resulting in social and moral restructuring, and each sharing commonalities in social angst at the outset and phenomenological outworkings as they unfolded. This Thesis intends to identify such commonalities and demonstrate Divine, rather than human/social causation.
Many have suggested human, sociological causation in awakenings as solutions to periods of social disaffection or crisis. Through the comparison of works detailing such awakenings, contrasting them with overviews written from a naturalistic/sociological framework, and reviewing multiple other exigent factors, the thesis will demonstrate Divine causation. The thesis also indicates that the consistency of cultural phenomenological patterns are useful as indicators of impending revivals.
