    Scope and Contents

    The Jesus movement was a movement in Christianity beginning on the West Coast of the United States in the late 1960's and spreading primarily through North America and Europe, before dying out by the early 1980's. It was the major Christian element within the hippie counterculture, or, conversely, the major hippie element within some strands of Protestantism. Members of the movement were called Jesus people, a phrase coined by Duane Pederson.
    Bringing together the gifts, mementos and recordings of many of the “Jesus People,” this is a growing collection which includes documents and recordings from the era as well as updated and current productions.
