Abstract

This article examines an Appalachian Pentecostal revival in socioeconomic context, analyzing it as an arena through which male church leaders interpreted women's abandonment of the church as they simultaneously sought to reestablish Pentecostal patriarchal hegemony within the community. The revival illuminates the contradictory tensions between gender, class, and community as they are articulated through revival discourse.
