about

This book examines the debate over the connection between religion and public life in society during the fifty years following the American Revolution. Sassi challenges the conventional wisdom, finding an essential continuity to the period's public Christianity, whereas most previous studieshave seen this period as one in which the nation's cultural paradigm shifted from republicanism to liberal individualism. Focusing on the Congregational clergy of New England, he demonstrates that throughout this period there were Americans concerned with their corporate destiny, retaining acommitment to constructing a righteous community and assessing the cosmic meaning of the American experiment.
Jonathan D. Sassi is an Assistant Professor of History at the College of Staten Island.
