Elder John Leland : Jeffersonian itinerant by L. H Butterfield( Book )

4 editions published between 1952 and 1953 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[Elder John Leland] played a substantial part in molding another American tradition that is full of meaning to all of us today-- the separation of church and state in the United States. In 1774, when Leland was converted to the Baptist faith, the Baptists were generally regarded as a set of ignorant enthusiasts, without social standing, without legal sanction for their religious services or for marriages performed by their ministers. In Virginia Baptist preachers were being regularly thrown into prison as strollers and vagabonds; mob actions breaking up their services went unpunished by the magistrates; their petitions to the legislature for relief from these oppressions were largely disregarded. In Massachusetts and Connecticut Baptists were fined and their property was distrained for taxes to pay Congregational ministers whose teachings were repugnant to them, and to build and repair meeting houses they would not attend. Much of Leland's sixty-seven year career as a Baptist evangelist was expended in fighting to remove these disabilities-- not only for Baptists but for persons of all faiths, Christian and non-Christian, and even for those who held no recognized religious faith." - from introduction
