about

Fundamentalists in the City is a story of religious controversy and division, set within turn of the century and early twentieth-century Boston. It offers a new perspective on the rise of fundamentalism, emphasizing the role of local events, both sacred and secular, in deepening the dividebetween liberal and conservative Protestants. The first part of the narrative, beginning with the arrest of three clergymen for preaching on the Boston Common in 1885, shows the importance of anti-Catholicism as a catalyst for change. The second part of the book deals with separation, told throughthe events of three city-wide revivals, each demonstrating a stage of conservative Protestant detachment from their urban origins.
Margaret Lamberts Bendroth is at American Congregational Association.

Editorial Reviews

"Margaret Bendroth's deeply researched and elegantly written study of Boston turns up surprising and suggestive insights about the implications of Catholic power and urban geography for the rise of Protestant fundamentalism as a twentieth-century political force. Thoroughly at home in Boston'sshifting urban religious landscape, Bendroth guides us through the transformation of Boston fundamentalism from a conservative Protestantism mobilized to recall civic virtue in an Irish Catholic city, to a neo-evangelicalism embarking from New England on an international crusade for Christ." --Peter D'Agostino, Associate Professor, Department of History and Catholic Studies Program, University of Illinois at Chicago and author of Rome in America: Transnational Catholic Ideology from the Risorgimento to Fascism
