Lorenzo Dow (October 16, 1777-February 2, 1834) was a popular, eccentric American itinerant preacher and an important figure in the Second Great Awakening. He was appointed a Methodist circuit preacher in New York in 1798, but after a missionary trip to Ireland he was never connected officially with the ministry of the Methodist Church, though he remained essentially a Methodist in doctrine. Dow returned to New York in 1801 and preached in almost all parts of the United States over 30 years.
