Shouting : Genuine and Spurious

…is the title of an oddly engaging book by the American revivalist George W. Henry, published in 1859.  The subtitle is excellent: “In all ages of the church, from the birth of creation, when the sons of God shouted for joy, until the shout of the arch-angel : with numerous extracts from the Old and New Testament, and from the works of Wesley, Evans, Edwards, Abbott, Cartwright and Finley : giving a history of the outward demonstrations of the Spirit, such as laughing, screaming, shouting, leaping, jerking, and falling under the power, &c. : with extensive comments, numerous anecdotes and illustrations.” Here is the book on the internet archive, well worth exploring.
