500 $a Begun in Boston in 1823, Zion's Herald is one of the oldest and greatest of the Methodist weekly magazines. Noted for its independence and spirit, the Herarld devoted much space in its early years to religious controversies with Calvinism and Universalism, while also giving attention to news of Methodist missions and churches and to Methodist church history. It was strongly opposed to slavery and in 1835 took up the cause of abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison when he was attacked by a mob in Boston. The Herald also advocated temperance and women's rights. There were departments for women and for children, and in later years, a family department was added, and children's stories, book reviews, illustrations and advertisements became more plentiful. Contents also included short sermons, poetry, biography, and political, literary, and scientific news items. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
