19 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV>Southerners may have abandoned their dream of a political nation after Appomattox, but they preserved their cultural identity by blending Christian rhetoric and symbols with the rhetoric and imagery of Confederate tradition. Out of defeat emerged a civil religion that embodied the Lost Cause. As Charles Reagan Wilson writes in his new preface, "The Lost Cause version of the regional civil religion was a powerful expression, and recent scholarship affirms its continuing power in the minds of many white southerners."</DIV>

Encyclopedia of religion in the South( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The publication of the Encyclopedia of Religion in the South in 1984 signaled the rise in the scholarly interest in the study of religion in the South. Religion has always been part of the cultural heritage of that region, but scholarly investigation had been sporadic. Since the original publication of the ERS, however, the South has changed significantly in that Christianity is no longer the primary religion observed. Other religions like Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism have begun to have very important voices in Southern life. This one-volume reference, the only one of its kind, takes this expansion into consideration by updating older relevant articles and by adding new ones. After more than twenty years, the only reference book in the field of religion in the South has been totally revised and updated. Each article has been updated and the bibliography has been expanded. The ERS has also been expanded to include more than sixty new articles on religion in the South. New articles have been added on such topics as Elvis Presley, Appalachian music, Buddhism, Bill Clinton, Jerry Falwell, Fannie Lou Hamer, Zora Neale Hurston, Stonewall Jackson, popular religion, Pat Robertson, the PTL, sports and religion in the South, theme parks, and much more."--Jacket

Southern missions : the religion of the American South in global perspective by Charles Reagan Wilson( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southern Missions places the religious history of The American South in a global context. The global connections of southern religion reflect a tradition within the American South that historians have failed to examine. This study sweeps from the diversity of Christian and Jewish groups in the colonial South to the contemporary migration of ethnic groups and their religious traditions previously little known in the South. Perhaps most notably, gender emerges as a key analytical category for understanding the global reach of religion in the American South

New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture: Volume 3: History
Science & medicine( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Science and medicine have been critical to southern history and the formation of southern culture. For three centuries, scientists in the South have documented the lush natural world around them and set a lasting tradition of inquiry. The medical history of the region, however, has been at times tragic. Disease, death, and generations of poor health have been the legacy of slavery, the plantation economy, rural life, and poorly planned cities. The essays in this volume explore this legacy as well as recent developments in technology, research, and medicine in the South. Subjects include natural history, slave health, medicine in the Civil War, public health, eugenics, HIV/AIDS, environmental health, and the rise of research institutions and hospitals, to name but a few. With 38 thematic essays, 44 topical entries, and a comprehensive overview essay, this volume offers an authoritative reference to science and medicine in the American South."--Publisher's website

From the Potomac to the Gulf, artists were creating in the South even before it was recognized as a region. The South has contributed to America's cultural heritage with works as diverse as Benjamin Henry Latrobe's architectural plans for the nation's Capitol, the wares of the Newcomb Pottery, and Richard Clague's tonalist Louisiana bayou scenes. This comprehensive volume shows how, through the decades and centuries, the art of the South expanded from mimetic portraiture to sophisticated responses to national and international movements. The essays treat historic and current trends in the visu
