Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Martin Madan (1726 - 2 May 1790), English writer, was educated at Westminster School, and at Christ Church, Oxford, where he graduated in 1746. Martin Madan was the son of Judith Madan the poet, and Colonel Martin Madan. In 1748 he was called to the bar, and for some time lived a very uninhibited life, until he was persuaded to change his ways on hearing a sermon by John Wesley. He took holy orders, and was appointed chaplain to the Lock Hospital, London. He was closely connected with the Calvinistic Methodist movement supported by the countess of Huntingdon, and from time to time acted as an itinerant preacher. He was a first cousin of the poet William Cowper, with whom he had some correspondence on religious matters.show more
