Revival and Decline

Huw Edwards tells the extraordinary story of the religious fervour led by Evan Roberts in Wales in 1904, and explores the waning of faith soon afterwards.

In 1904, Wales was on fire with religious fervour. Levels of drinking and crime shot downwards. Prayer meetings were held underground in pits and thousands flocked to hear the leader of the Revival, Evan Roberts. But in a year or two, this energy fizzled out and the long decline of religion began. Huw Edwards tells the extraordinary story of 1904 and explores the waning of faith.
