Methodist (n.) One of a sect of Christians, the outgrowth of a small association called the ''Holy Club,'' formed at Oxford University, A.D. 1729, of which the most conspicuous members were John Wesley and his brother Charles; -- originally so called from the methodical strictness of members of the club in all religious duties.
