Undermined establishment : church-state relations in America, 1880-1920 by Robert T Handy( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the middle of the nineteenth century, a stable relationship between American religious organizations and the state was taken for granted. Concord prevailed between the Christian (and largely Protestant) ""establishment"" on one side and governmental bodies on the other. Here a preeminent scholar of American religious history shows what happened when that settled relationship was tested and challenged. The decades from 1880 to 1920 were marked by an unprecedented influx of immigrants (many of whom were Catholics and Jews), increasing conflicts between public and private school systems, ex
Altered landscapes : Christianity in America, 1935-1985( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part One surveys the striking changes (and continuities) in the mainline Protestant, Roman Catholic, evangelical/fundamentalist, and black churches, including developments in their public worship and their views of world mission. Due attention is given to the challenges and creative opportunities posed by ecumenical movements, by the rise in women's consciousness and in racial and ethnic awareness, by new attitudes toward Jewish-Christian relations, and by the concerns of Third World peoples and churches. Part Two examines foundational developments in theological education and in the traditional academic disciplines of Bible, systematic theology, Christian ethics, and church history. Also considered at length are the changing strategies in religious education and the complex interplay between religion and science. Part Three offers a probing discussion on the relation between Christianity and contemporary American culture
A history of Union Theological Seminary in New York by Robert T Handy( Book )

9 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of Union Theological Seminary in New York, which was established in 1836 to train primarily Presbyterian ministerial students in the area, is reported. The institution has since evolved into a nondenominational graduate school of theology in the Christian tradition, and in recent decades has trained some students from other religions. Attention is directed to the seminary's growth, influence, and struggles during its century and a half, along with the careers of many of the important persons at the college, including Edward Robinson, Philip Schaff, Charles A. Briggs, Paul Tillich, Reinhold Niebuhr, and Henry Sloane Coffin. Also considered are a number of controversies that have arisen because of the position the seminary has taken on certain theological and social issues. These issues include support of Briggs during his trials for heresy between 1891 and 1893 and the seminary's relations with Columbia University, its Morningside Heights neighbor, during the university's turbulent 1968 rebellions. It is noted that Union Theological Seminary played an important role in the rise of the ecumenical movement, beginning with the Briggs trials. It also has been important to religious and educational history. (Sw)
