Pietism, as a distinct movement in the German Church, was then originated by Spener by religious meetings at his house (collegia pietatis) at which he repeated his sermons, expounded passages of the New Testament, and induced those present to join in conversation on religious questions that arose.
Pietism is considered the major influence that lead to the creation of the "Evangelical Church of the Union" in Prussia in 1817.
Pietism was a major influence on John Wesley and others who began the Methodist movement in 18th century Great Britain, and modern American Methodists and members of the Holiness movement continue to be influenced by Spener and also the Moravian legacy.

Pietism is a movement within the ranks of Protestantism, originating in the reaction against time fruitless Protestant orthodoxy of the seventeenth century, and aiming at the revival of devotion and practical Christianity.
After the foundation of the University of Halle the campaign against Pietism was pursued with increased vigour by the orthodox Lutherans, notably Samuel Schelwig at Danzig, Valentin Alberti at Leipzig, and the theological faculty of Wittenberg, with Johann Deutschmann at its head.
Johann Salomo Semler, the father of rationalism, came from the Halle school of Pietism, and his appointment as professor of theology at the University of Halle in 1752 opened the way to the ascendancy of rationalism, against which the devout Pietists were as powerless as the representatives of Protestant orthodoxy.

The bond between the Pietism of the eighteenth and that of the nineteenth century was supplied by survivals of the older movement, by the Moravians, and by the Christentumsgesellschaft (see Christentumsgesellschaft, die Deutsche).

 Christos Yannaras-- Pietism as a Heresy
For pietism, salvation is not primarily the fact of the Church, the theanthropic "new creation" of the body of Christ, the mode of existence of its trinitarian prototype and the unity of the communion of persons.
Pietism is a heresy in the realm of ecclesiology: it undermines or actually denies the very truth of the Church, transferring the event of salvation from the ecclesial to the individual ethos, to piety divorced from the trinitarian mode of existence, from Christ's way of obedience.
Pietism is definitely not an autonomous phenomenon, independent of the historical and cultural conditions which have shaped western civilization over the last three centuries.

Pietism, as a German-Lutheran movement, lasted from late 1600's to the mid-1700's.
As a continuing movement, Pietism is defined as a movement toward individual renewal, as evidenced by unswerving loyalty to Scripture as the rule of faith and conduct, full and radical commitment to Christ, application of spiritual disciplines and "devotional aids." (Christian History p.3)
Eventually, many forms of Pietism led to a new "justification by works" and found little favor with the idea of a "church within the church," made up of "regenerated" individuals versus those who are mere Christians.

 The New White-Wine Pietists - by Craig Parton   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Pietism is cross-dressing in American Christian culture today in a way that would have been unthinkable to the pietists of twenty-five years ago.
Thus the cultural and social package in which pietism dresses in the 1990's is often dramatically different from that which initially arose in reaction to the Reformation of the six-teenth century.
Pietism devoured Lutheran orthodoxy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (it is generally agreed that Lutheran orthodoxy in Europe died for over seventy-five years with the death of J. Bach in 1750, an ardent foe of pietism in his day), and now casts its bulbous eyes toward the confessional orthodox churches of America.

 Piety and Pietism - Nick Trakakis - Theandros - An Online journal of Orthodox Christian Theology and Philosophy
For pietism, salvation is viewed in legalistic terms as a kind of justification, conferred on an individual because she has lived up to her religious duties and the moral commandments, thereby imitating the ‘virtues’ of Christ.
Pietism first rose to prominence within the Lutheran church under the leadership of Philipp Jakob Spener (1635-1705), quickly becoming a major reform movement during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (some Pietists, in fact, saw themselves as participating in the second phase of the Reformation).
Pietism has, for example, played a significant role in the economic development of western societies, and particularly in the birth and spread of capitalism in such societies.
