Edwards was known for his passion and energy. He generally preached in his home parish, unlike other revival preachers who traveled throughout the colonies. George Whitefield, a minister from Britain, had a significant impact during the Great Awakening.
Whitefield toured the colonies up and down the Atlantic coast, preaching his message. In one year, Whitefield covered 5, miles in America and preached more than times. His style was charismatic, theatrical and expressive. Whitefield would often shout the word of God and tremble during his sermons.
People gathered by the thousands to hear him speak. Whitefield preached to common people, slaves and Native Americans. No one was out of reach. The Great Awakening brought various philosophies, ideas and doctrines to the forefront of Christian faith.
Not everyone embraced the ideas of the Great Awakening. One of the leading voices of opposition was Charles Chauncy, a minister in Boston. By aboutdebate over the Great Awakening had split the New England clergy and many colonists into two groups. In the s, another religious revival, which became known as the Second Great Awakening, began in New England. This movement is typically regarded as less emotionally charged than the First Great Awakening. It led to the founding of several colleges, seminaries and mission societies.
A Third Great Awakening was said to span from the late s to the early 20th century. Some scholars, however, disagree that this movement was ever a significant event. The Great Awakening notably altered the religious climate in the American colonies. Ordinary people were encouraged to make a personal connection with God, instead of relying on a minister.
Newer denominations, such as Methodists and Baptists, grew quickly. While the movement unified the colonies and boosted church growth, experts say it also caused division among those who supported it and those who rejected it. Many historians claim that the Great Awakening influenced the Revolutionary War by encouraging the notions of nationalism and individual rights. The revival also led to the establishment of several renowned Awakening institutions, including Princeton, Rutgers, Brown and Dartmouth universities.
The Great Awakening unquestionably had a significant impact on Christianity. It reinvigorated religion in America at a time when it was steadily declining and introduced ideas that would penetrate into American culture for many years to come. The Great Awakening, UShistory.

In ancient times, the Fell Dragon Grima attempted to destroy the world. To stop Grima, the Divine Dragon Naga chose the ruler of the Halidom of Ylisse known as the First Exaltand granted him power through two magical objects: Falchiona sword with the power to slay dragons; and the Fire Emblema magical shield. Using these, the Exalt struck down Grima, sending it into a long slumber.
In the intervening period, the continents of Archanea and Valentia became known as Ylisse and Valm. By the present time, the land of Ylisse is divided between the Halidom of Ylisse, which continues to worship Naga, and is ruled by Exalt Emmeryn and defended by her brother Chrom ; the kingdom of Plegiawhich worships Grima; and Regna Feroxa country whose rulers periodically fight for dominance.
Fifteen years prior to Awakeningthe last Exalt of Ylisse, Emmeryn's father, waged a religious war against Plegia, which greatly damaged Ylisse and left bitterness on both sides.
Ylisse has slowly recovered from the war due to Emmeryn's peaceful actions. Awoken by a voice, Robin is greeted by Chrom and his younger sister Lissa. Despite losing all memory and having only just met, Robin is able to remember Chrom's name as well as their own.
Chrom and Lissa's retainer, Frederickexpresses some doubt in Robin's mysterious origins, before Southtown is suddenly attacked by bandits. Chrom, Lissa, and Frederick head to the town to quell the attack. Robin follows and reveals their tactical knowledge and helps to guide them through the battle. That night, the group is attacked by a series of corpse soldiersbut is ultimately rescued by a mysterious masked man going by the name of the Hero-King Marth. After being thanked for his help, Marth leaves, warning them that the battle was only a prelude of a greater danger to come.
They are also formally introduced to most of the other Shepherds at their private barracks. Emmeryn has been informed of the new threat that Chrom, Lissa, and Robin faced, now dubbed the Risen. However, to make matters worse, Plegia's continuous attacks spur her to seek help from their neighboring country to the north, Ferox.
Chrom volunteers to take the Shepherds to Ferox to seek assistance. Despite some initial doubts of Chrom's forces, due to numerous attacks by Plegian bandits claiming to be Chrom, Ferox ultimately allows them audience and the Shepherds meet the East-Khan, Flaviawho regretfully cannot help Chrom as she is not the ruling khan. At the tournament, Chrom's rival is none other than "Marth", whom he manages to defeat after a tough fight. Despite a successful rescue of Maribelle, Gangrel uses the incident to formally declare war against Ylisse, prompting Emmeryn to take precautionary action.
Later that night, Marth appears in the Ylissean Castle to warn Chrom of an assassination attempt against Emmeryn set to take place that night, claiming to have seen the future.
He strikes down an ambush attempt against Chrom, using it as a example of his intentions. However, Chrom is not given much time to process this revelation as a rumble comes from the castle as a small Plegian force, led by Validar, has put the assassination plot against Emmeryn into action.
During the battle, Validar notices Robin, but is ultimately struck down and killed by Chrom's forces. In a dark abyss, Validar's soul is approached by a dark figure calling themselves " Grima ". Though close to death, Validar still clings to life and is revived by Grima for a greater purpose. While she reluctantly agrees, Emmeryn and the Shepherds have barely left the capital when news arrives from Cordelia that Ylisstol has been attacked by Plegia.
Realizing the direness of the situation, Emmeryn entrusts Chrom with the Fire Emblem before heading back to Ylisstol for one last attempt at parleying with Gangrel. Gangrel offers one last ultimatum to relinquish the Fire Emblem or watch Emmeryn die. Chrom refuses both and nearly succeeds in rescuing Emmeryn. However, their rescue effort led by Phila is struck down immediately when Aversa summons Risen archers who slay the Pegasus Knights.
Seeing that the Fire Emblem is too precious to give to Gangrel, Emmeryn willingly flings herself from the cliff over the castle. Emmeryn's sacrifice causes great despair amongst the Shepherds, who are forced to retreat.
Behind the scenes, "Marth" laments that despite her efforts, history is still proceeding in similar fashion. Despite the crushing defeat and their failure to save Emmeryn, Chrom and the others resolve themselves to fight on, despite their loss.
However, Emmeryn's sacrifice begins to have an effect on the Plegians, causing mass desertions of the Plegian soldiers who have lost the will to fight Ylisse after hearing Emmeryn's words. Through Robin's tactics and the support of the Shepherds, Chrom ends the Mad-King's tyranny by supposedly killing him in battle. The Ylisse-Plegian war ends with the remaining Plegian forces surrendering.
With the death of Emmeryn, Chrom ascends the throne and becomes the new Exalt. During this period, Chrom is formally married either to female Robin, SullySumiaMaribelleOliviaor an unnamed village maiden. He also becomes the father of a newborn daughter, Lucinawho bears the Brand of the Exalt in her left eye. Now that Valm was under his rule, Walhart set his sights on Ylisse as well, and soon his soldiers will have reached a port in the western region. The Shepherds fought and defeated them, but they had been nothing but the vanguard, and many more would soon arrive.
Forced into another war against a powerful empire, Basilio suggests that they receive aid from Plegia, who have warships and gold to utilize that would allow Chrom and the others to battle Valm in the sea and reach their lands to try and stop them.
Despite not liking it, Chrom decides to try and negotiate with the new king of Plegia, who happens to be none other than Validar, who by all means should have been killed in the failed attempt to assassinate Emmeryn during the last war. Surprisingly, Validar is more than generous with Chrom, as he provides warships and transports, and was willing to fully fund the campaign against Valm, but would not be able to provide soldiers due to the last war.
Regardless, Chrom received more than adequate help, and accepted. Validar then introduces the hierophant of Plegia, a person who is revealed to be the spitting image of Robin, and even has the same name as them. Despite this, Chrom is unable to get any answers, due to time being of the essence.
However, they are then ambushed by Risen, whom they suspect was sent by Validar. Lucina reveals that she is from the future, more than 10 years later, where the Fell Dragon Grima had been resurrected and had laid waste to the world. Lucina had in fact journeyed to the past, along with companions who are the children of other members of the Shepherds, to try and stop the return of Grima from happening. As Lucina joins their group, they make their voyage to Valm and try to learn more about the future from Lucina.
They are then informed that a Valmese fleet is approaching them, with equal amount of ships, but vastly superior number of soldiers. After reaching Valm, they run into Say'ria swordswoman that was being chased by Valm soldiers.
Not only that, but the Valmese Empire commands over a million men, much to everyone's shock. However, Say'ri states that the achievements from Chrom and the Shepherds with decimating the Valmese fleet spread great inspiration among the masses. This leads Robin to suggest that they retreat immediately, as the turncloaks that surrounded them betrayed out of fear for the empire and would not put too strong of an effort to stop them.
Basilio volunteers for the mission to lead the small group to face Walhart, but Lucina tries to stop him, as she explains that in the future, Basilio dies in the fight against Walhart, slain by the Conqueror himself. Despite her protests, Basilio still goes, with Flavia by his side. As Walhart moves to attack again, Flavia jumps in and helps block an attack, giving Basilio a chance to deliver a powerful strike, only for Walhart to strike back with even greater force, defeating Basilio.
Defeated and in near death, Basilio quickly gives Flavia the Gules Gemstone and tells her to escape with it and give it to Chrom. Despite not wanting to leave him, Basilio manages to get Flavia to obey and flee the battle.
Though she seemed to have lost hope, Robin convinces her that the fight was not yet over. Taking a moment to rest, they learn that Basilio had been killed, just as Lucina had stated he would. Flavia explained what happened and also gave Chrom the Gules Gemstone, thus making Chrom have three out of five.
They then make their way to face Walhart in the Awakening. Despite Excellus confidence that the Resistance would take care of Chrom and the others for them, Awakening opposite happens. Walhart makes his final stand in his palace as he faces against Chrom and the Resistance.
Despite Chrom trying to convince Walhart that there were other ways besides force, Walhart would not be deterred, thus forcing Chrom to battle and defeat him. After returning to Ylisse, Chrom Awakening later given a message by Validar that they would give Chrom the Sable Gemstone if Chrom were to visit them.
As they enter the Plegian Castle, Robin notices that Validar has prepared an ambush against them, revealing the monarch's intentions. Validar at first tries to speak formally, but when Chrom rushes him and Lucina speaks, Validar reveals his true colors and demands that Chrom hand him the Fire Emblem. Robin manages to help them escape, having an escape route prepared earlier, but as they neared the exits, Validar intercepts them and injures Chrom.
Later on, Lucina speaks to Robin alone and talks of her past with Chrom and how she would do anything to keep him safe, which Robin agrees to, but much to their horror, Lucina points her Falchion at Robin, and declares that Robin had to die, as it was them that had killed Chrom in the future.
Lucina admits that while she was wary of Robin in the beginning, she realized that Robin would truly never mean to harm Chrom due to the powerful bond the two shared, but seeing how Validar was able to take control of Robin made it clear that it was Validar that forced Robin to kill Chrom. If Robin is neither of those, then Chrom will stop her from killing Robin or stopping the two from going into a death battle, having been listening in on their conversation.
Chrom assures Lucina that the bond he shared with Robin was unbreakable, as they were two halves of one whole, and they could overcome their destiny, to which Lucina chose to believe in those bonds, and asks Robin for forgiveness.
The two explain that everything that Chrom and the others did were always destined to occur: from defeating Gangrel to defeating Walhart. Even stopping the assassination of Emmerym was nothing but delaying the inevitable. Aversa then summoned the Deadlords to delay Chrom as Validar prepares.
However, Robin was saved by their mother when they had been a newborn by taking them away one night, and Validar had been unsuccessful in finding Robin since, until now. The battle played much like the dream that Robin experienced before they had been found by Chrom.
