Bethel & Adelphia: Two Institutions with a Common Foundation in Swedish Pietism

Chris Gehrz authored a post, "When Bethel Had A Sibling" that is available as part of a larger project offering a digital history of Bethel University from 1914-2014 with the title of Bethel at War: A Digital History of a Christian College in a Century of Warfare.  Bethel University in St. Paul, MN was founded as Bethel Academy and had a sister institution, Adelphia College in Seattle, WA.  Gehrz explores Bethel's success and Adelphia's closure in the broader context of institutions founded in the early 1900's.  Bethel is affiliated with the Baptist General Conference that has roots in Swedish Pietism.

The page also includes links to other digital resources hosted by Bethel that may be of interest.
