John Wesley, founder of Methodism, experiences a religious conversion at Aldersgate Chapel in London while listening to a reading of Luther's preface to the Epistle to the Romans.

This experience will be the primary cause of his developing Methodist practices. In his journal he says"I felt my heart strangely warmed," and the character of his ministry is permanently changed.
