Characterized as the wittiest and most religious man in England, William Wilberforce, a prominent Member of Parliament, was also a convert to Evangelical Christianity in the Church of England. He became the most prominent layman in the Evangelical Revival and the leader of many of its causes, particularly the anti-slavery campaign. This bibliography provides a valuable guide to sources of information on Wilberforce. The volume begins with a biographical essay and chronology of Wilberforce's life. Next comes information on manuscript and archival resources, followed by published works on Wilberforce's personal life. The next two chapters focus on the religious and political background of the era and Wilberforce's life and career. Following are Wilberforce's speeches in the House of Commons and periodicals. The final three chapters give information on contemporary portraits of Wilberforce, caricatures of him, and places associated with him. The volume also includes indexes to authors, artists and cartoonists, and subjects.
