This course will introduce the student to religions in America through the consideration of four thematic approaches to a description of American religions as a whole. These thematic approaches cut across religious traditions and attempt to characterize some of the ways in which the extraordinary variety in the American religious imagination shares characteristics by virtue of its common environment and its common history. The four thematic descriptions of American religions that we will examine are Natural Religion, Disestablished Religion, Constitutional Religion, and Antebellum Religions. There are other themes that could be chosen and we will from time to time note those other themes as they touch on our work. Three Lecture.
