Overview

Nathan Bangs (May 2, 1778 – May 3, 1862) was an American Christiantheologian in the Methodist tradition. Born in Stratford, Connecticut, he received a limited education, taught school, and in 1799 went to Upper Canada in search of work as either a teacher or a land-surveyor. He was converted to Methodism in 1800 and worked for eight years as an itinerant preacher in the wilderness of the Canadian provinces, serving communities in the areas of Kingston, York, London, Niagara, and Montreal. Of particular note is his responsibility for organizing the first camp meeting in Upper Canada in the fall of 1805. In 1820, he was transferred from a pastorate in New York to become the Senior Book Agent of the Methodist Book Concern. Bangs was the principal founder and secretary of the Methodist missionary society. His most important workwas a History of the Methodist Episcopal Church from its Origin in 1776 to the General Conference of 1840
