Evan John Roberts was an Evangelist and leading figure of the 1904–1905 Welsh Revival who suffered many setbacks in his later life. His obituary in The Western Mail summed up his career thus: “He was a man who had experienced strange things. In his youth, he had seemed to hold the nation in the palms of his hands.
