An outline of recent applications of modern infinite-dimensional manifold techniques to general relativity is presented. The uses, scope, and future of such methods are delineated. It is argued that the mixing of the two active fields of general relativity and global analysis provides stimulation for both fields as well as producing good theorems. The authors' work on linearization stability of the Einstein equations is sketched out to substantiate the arguments.
