A report, not a literal transcription, of the opening lecture held at the third Southern Missionary Festival at ’s Heer-Arendskerke on June 23, 1875. The subject was the revivalistic holiness movement in England. With thirty Dutch brothers Kuyper had attended the ten-day Brighton Convention, which opened on May 29, 1875 under the leadership of Robert Pearsall Smith (1827–1898). This convention made such a deep impression on Kuyper that he also spoke about it at the other two Dutch Christian National Missionary Festivals of that year (the twelfth Christian National Missionary Festival at Boekenrode near Haarlem on July 7, 1875 and the Northern Missionary Festival at Winschoten on July 14, 1875).
