Show Summary Details


Rigg again became president of the Methodist Conference in 1892. Although this proved to have been the cause for some distractions on his educational work, he was still well-respected in the field since day-school masters who were assigned across the country trained under him at Westminster. During the period between 1893 and 1894, Rigg was fundamentally busied with the ‘great legislative proposal’ that he delivered to Conference. This proposal involved changing the status of district chairmen in which the responsibilities of circuit duties and circuit superintendents will no longer be assigned to them. Also, Rigg made an analysis of the Roman Catholic church which showcased how his views were not without a certain degree of uncertainty. In this chapter, we look into the last major contributions that Dr Rigg initiated in the field of education.
