[History] > 19th Century - Quph - The Abolition of Slavery

Spoke 19

Psalms, Mark, II John

O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.

Spoke 19, Cycle 1
(Psalm 116.16)

The Nineteenth Letter Quph has has the seemingly paradoxical association with both Holiness and the Flesh. This duality manifests most obviously in the Holiness Movement and the introduction of Darwin's Theory of Evolution. Both of these ideas come together in the Nineteenth Century abolition of Flesh Trade (Slavery) led largely by prominent members of the Holiness/Evangelical Movement.

Abolition in England (1809 - 1833)

God Almighty has set before me two great objects, the suppression of the slave trade and the reformation of manners [i.e. morality]. [W. Wilberforce]

From his teens, William Wilberforce This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window was appalled by slavery. At the age of 17, he wrote to a York paper "in condemnation of the odious traffic in human flesh." His passions were only amplified by his conversion to to an evangelical (Wesleyan style) branch of the Anglican Church in 1784. His efforts to end slavery were applauded by his spiritual father in this, the John Wesley's last letter This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window to him, written in 1781:

Dear Sir:
Unless the divine power has raised you us to be as Athanasius contra mundum, [Athanasius against the world] I see not how you can go through your glorious enterprise in opposing that execrable villainy which is the scandal of religion, of England, and of human nature. Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be fore you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing! Go on, in the name of God and in the power of his might, till even American slavery (the vilest that ever saw the sun) shall vanish away before it.

The Holiness Movement and the Abolition of Slavery were profoundly related, the one being instrumental in the destruction of the other. Here's another link to a biography about William Wilberforce, where he is called The Liberator This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window.

Abolition in America (1865)

If Wilberforce's struggle threatened to wear him out "by the opposition of men and devils" what then would be the fate of he who would oppose American slavery "the vilest that ever saw the sun?" Abraham Lincoln was murdered, and the fight against American slavery tore the country apart, setting brother against brother, and soaking the land in blood. But victory was finally won, and in 1865 the 13th Ammendment was passed, abolishing slavery from the United States of America.
