The Christian Corrector Corrected. By A Protestant. June, 2nd. Month, (new date) Year the Fourth. - 1829 . [ Price Three-pence.]
London: Printed by J. Peel, (, New Cut, Lambeth, 1829 . 0. A dis-bound pamphlet. 8vo. 8.25" x 5.25" . pp.14 (plus errata leaf). Edges toned, and small hole to the top of the title page (not affecting text). G+. John Ward (25 December 1781 – 12 March 1837), known as "Zion Ward", was an Irish preacher, mystic and self-styled prophet, active (in the latter capacity) in England from around 1828-1835. He was one of those claiming to be the successor of prophetess Joanna Southcott after her death. His imprisonment for blasphemy prompted the intervention of Member of Parliament, Joseph Hume.. Charles Twort, a former warehouse labourer, assisted Ward at all his lectures. The immense popularity of the two men was due both to their eccentricity and to the popular appeal of their millenarianism. During the early decades of the nineteenth century, revivalism gripped Britain on an enormous scale and the preoccupation with prophecies of the second coming of Christ extended through every level of society.
