What was the Great Awakening? The Great Awakening was a religious revival that began in the 1730s. Many church leaders were worried that as the increase in politics had grown and that participation in religion had begun to fall. These fears lead to the movement of revivals throughout the colonies. There were many preachers involved but the leaders were Jonathan Edwards and George Whitfield.
Rhetorical devices are used to appeal to the audience and Henry uses them effectively in that way. Henry first uses ethos to appeal to the morals of the audience by saying ,“Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.” Henry is appealing to the religious morals of the audience by using God's power to persuade the audience to think that going to war with Great Britain is the right thing to do. The people are more likely to listen to something when they think God gives them the power to do it than when Henry simply asks for the audience to listen. Another rhetorical device Henry uses is pathos to appeal to the audience's emotions. Henry states, “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

Not only in ceremonies at church, but also outside of church. In the Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres, Blair argues, “... the defects of his style can almost on every occasion, be traced back to his indistinct conception of the subject: so close is the connection between thoughts, and the words which are clothed.” (952). For example, during church sermons, the speaker, which in this case is the preacher, understands that his audience believes in God, so he will speak to them about God, and help them understand the bible and to keep believing in God. But if the audience is not religious, the preacher knows that he or she must find a way to make the audience believe. Therefore like Campbell states, “when persuasion is the end, passion also must be engaged.” (926), the preacher or a church member has to make his or her subject feel passionate about God.
His mother, acting like a citizen, brought up the topic many times to the council members, acting like the government, which responded to her priority and brought her son back. Chapter 2: As a Christian community, the founders of JPUSA created the rules of the community based on the Bible and the teachings of Jesus, such as what is a sin. Much alike, the father of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, got many ideas from John Locke’s writings, such as natural rights and equality, and these principles as a base to the Declaration. Chapter 2: Whenever someone wanted to leave JPUSA, the leadership would put up a fight and make it very difficult to leave. This is similar to when the United States wanted to break off ties with Great Britain.
“We must fight!” a short exclamatory sentence which creates a sense of urgency into the audience. As the speech reaches its climax, and the excitement and energy that Henry has placed into the audience, they are now convinced and ready to charge into battle against the British. Patrick Henry’s “Speech to the Virginia Convention” was a call to arms to the colonist against the British during the 1700’s. Through the use of diction, tone, appeal to ethos and pathos, and various syntactical elements, he is able to evoke emotions and energy into the audience and persuade them into going up against their mother

Also, Hale almost played as an interrogator when he was giving rapid fire questions to John about his Christian character and if he goes to church in his visit to the Proctor house (Miller 171). In the beginning acts, Hale was trusting the court more than John and was a big part of handling warrants of the accused individuals along with having much confidence in himself, his knowledge of witchcraft, and knowledge of witches in Salem. In Act 2 and 3 in the play, The Crucible by Arthur Miller, the character Reverend Hale was changing a lot. Throughout the first act of this play Reverend Hale had much of his trust in the court and fully believed the devil is in Salem but as the trial begins and goes on things start to change when Hale starts to question the court shown when he pleads

The Great Awakening unified the diverse colonies with the belief that colonists must shift their lives’ focus from worldly matters, such as accumulating land and wealth, back to faith and the church i n order to avoid condemnation by God. Ministers, such as the passionate George Whitefield, became very influential and powerful at the time by spreading this concept along with methods for earning salvation. For example, “at Philadelphia…, many thousands flock[ed] to hear him preach the Gospel, and great numbers were converted to Christ” (VOF 78). With a large following, Whitefield’s ideas “... encouraged many colonists to trust their own views rather than those of established elites” (GME 160). Furthermore, “[o]rdinary colonists
