The Plymouth Brethren

Oxford University Press

The chapter describes the career of John Nelson Darby, from his early ministry in Ireland to the birth of the Brethren movement and its worldwide expansion through Darby’s international and intercontinental travels. His relationships with other Brethren pioneers, such as George Müller and those who established the first Continental Brethren communities in Italy and Switzerland, are also discussed. Although Darby has been extremely influential on the whole evangelical-fundamentalist wing of contemporary Protestantism, details of his life and career remain understudied. The chapter also asks the question whether, and in which sense, Darby may be regarded as the ‘founder’ of the Plymouth Brethren.
