William Blake's Religious Vision free pdf Analyzing Blake's works theologically through a wide-angled lens that encompasses the major religious movements he addressed in his art, Jesse concludes Blake was a theological moderate who defended an evangelical faith akin to the Methodism of John Wesley. She argues that, once we collate the different messages he constructed for each of his target audiences, we find him advocating a system that would have been recognized by his contemporaries as Wesleyan in character.
