This chapter deals with the period from the 1880s to the end of the 1910s, with special attention to the years 1907 and 1919. The first date is meaningful primarily to Korean Protestants, for this was the year of the great revival of 1907, in which Korean Protestants experienced a nometic breakthrough and fulfillment of their search for personal salvation. The second date is significant to all Koreans; this was the year of the March First Independence Movement which led to the birth of modern Korean nationalism. Though its significance was national, encompassing Koreans of all walks of life, the March First Movement was especially meaningful to Korean Protestants. It was through this movement more than anything else—more specifically, through the Protestants' preponderant contribution to it—that evangelicalism successfully bonded with Korean nationalism and became legitimated in South Korean history.

Keywords:   Protestantism, South Korea, Korean evangelicalism, Christianity, Korean Protestants, March First Independence Movement, Korean nationalism
