Setting down the sacred past : African-American race histories by Laurie F Maffly-Kipp( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As early as the 1780s, African Americans told stories that enabled them to survive and even thrive in the midst of unspeakable assault. Tracing previously unexplored narratives from the late eighteenth century to the 1920s, Laurie Maffly-Kipp brings to light an extraordinary trove of sweeping race histories that African Americans wove together out of racial and religious concerns.-publisher description
Religion and society in frontier California by Laurie F Maffly-Kipp( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chaotic and reputedly immoral society of the California mining frontier during the gold rush period greatly worried Protestant evangelicals from the Northeast, and they soon sent missionaries westward to transplant their religious institutions, beliefs, and practices in the area. This book tells the story of that enterprise, showing how it developed, why it failed, and what patterns of religious adherence evolved in the West in place of evangelical Protestantism
Practicing protestants : histories of Christian life in America, 1630-1965( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays explores the significance of practice in understanding American Protestant life. The authors are historians of American religion, practical theologians, and pastors and were the twelve principal researchers in a three-year collaborative project sponsored by the Lilly Endowment. Profiling practices that range from Puritan devotional writing to twentieth-century prayer, from missionary tactics to African American ritual performance, these essays provide a unique historical perspective on how Protestants have lived their faith within and outside of the church and how practice has formed their identities and beliefs. Each chapter focuses on a different practice within a particular social and cultural context. The essays explore transformations in American religious culture from Puritan to Evangelical and Enlightenment sensibilities in New England, issues of mission, nationalism, and American empire in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, devotional practices in the flux of modern intellectual predicaments, and the claims of late-twentieth-century liberal Protestant pluralism. Breaking new ground in ritual studies and cultural history, Practicing Protestants offers a distinctive history of American Protestant practice
Women's work : an anthology of African-American women's historical writings from antebellum America to the Harlem Renaissance( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This anthology aims to bring together writings by African-American women between 1832 and 1920, the period when they began to write for American audiences and to use history to comment on political and social issues of the day. The pieces are by more familiar nineteenth-century writers in Black America--like Maria Stewart, Francis E.W. Harper, and Alice Dunbar-Nelson--as well as lesser-known mothers and teachers whose participation in their local educational systems thrust them into national intellectual conversations. Each piece will have a headnote providing biographical information about its author as well as contextual information about its publication and the topic being discussed. The volume will contain a substantial introduction to the overall enterprise of Black women's historical writings. Because the editors are both trained in American studies and religious history, their introduction will particularly highlight religious themes and venues in which these writings were presented. This book should appeal to general readers of books like those in the Schomburg Library series, as well as those who work and teach American history, African American studies, women's studies, American literature, and American religious history"--Provided by publisher
American scriptures : an anthology of sacred writings by Laurie F Maffly-Kipp( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A groundbreaking collection of sacred Christian writings of American origin from Mormons, Shakers, Christian Scientists, and others. "Scripture" is any work in which the authors, translators, editors, or discoverers all claim to have received wisdom from a source outside themselves, be it revelation, enlightened philosophy, or ancient archive. For the first time in a single volume, American Scriptures gathers fifteen of these texts from religious movements with origins in the United States. Laurie F. Maffly-Kipp's concise single volume will enlighten not only readers interested in the historical and religious aspects of the scriptural texts, but also those whose interest has been piqued by such bestsellers as Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code

Friendly Americans : representing Quakers in the United States, 1850-1920 by Jennifer Connerley( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, representations of Quakers-like the Quaker Oats man-were perennially popular, on oatmeal canisters and throughout popular culture. In this dissertation, I examine popular representations of Quakers-in jokes, popular magazines, novels, images, advertising and other media-from 1850 to 1920. I also consider, where possible, Friends' reactions to these depictions. During this period, popular representations of Friends typically evidence a longing for the devout distinctiveness Friends were imagined to possess-evidenced by their plain dress, plain speech, and well-known restrictions against dishonesty and oath-swearing. The traditional and visible testimonies of Friends were quickly changing during the latter half of the nineteenth century. This evolution seemed to quicken the broader population's desire to retain and refashion a plain-dressed, old-fashioned representative of a national purity, piety, and unity that never existed. The most striking features of Quakers depicted in nineteenth century literatures and images center around the following categories: plain speech, abolitionism and women's rights, pacifism and war, plain dress (in the form of the Quaker bonnet), and the (in)famous Quaker Oats man. In the first body chapter, I explore the Quaker distinctive of plain speech, which seemed to acquire new and greater significance throughout the broader culture just as iv Friends were abandoning the witness. Rinsed of doctrinal significance, this testimony became an attractive and admirable anachronism, signifying an imagined set of old-fashioned values. In the third and fourth chapters, I explore the ways in which the Quaker witnesses for reforms and pacifism were absorbed and transformed by purveyors of popular culture who occasionally valued these testimonies but often reshaped them to suit opposing purposes. In the fifth and sixth chapters, I explore the ways in which dress and appearance-for Quaker women and the Quaker Oats man-were interpreted and commodified in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. By appropriating the attractive and malleable image of a religious sectarian, American authors, artists, and entrepreneurs fashioned a normative and vaguely religious referent for American superiority
Faithful scholarship the mainstreaming of Mormon studies and the politics of insider discourse by John-Charles Duffy( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Though Mormon scholars have pursued Mormon studies since the 1960s, only in the first years of the twenty-first century did a few non-Mormon schools begin to institutionalize the study of Mormonism. Bringing Mormon studies into the academic mainstream has required negotiation among various interests. The most influential Mormon players in these negotiations promote "faithful scholarship," scholarship predicated on orthodox Mormon presuppositions. Efforts to mainstream faithful scholarship offer a case study for examining issues currently debated in religious studies, especially around the question of how much academic authority insiders' discourse about their religions ought to have. First, I narrate the development of scholarship on Mormonism from 1959 to 2006, focusing on the contests within Mormonism that led to faithful scholarship's becoming the dominant model for Mormon scholars. Then I analyze the means and consequences of faithful scholarship's influence on ongoing initiatives to institutionalize Mormon studies at non-Mormon academic institutions

From The Man With the Hoe to Tobacco Road Class, Poverty and Religion and the Southern Tenant Farmers' Union by Shannon Lorraine Harvey( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis explores the intersections of poverty, class and religion as they were debated and depicted within the Southern Tenant Farmers' Union STFU. The STFU was a Christian and socialist inflected union of agricultural laborers that formed in response to the Agricultural Adjustment Act in 1934. I contextualize these depictions within the larger context of debates about poverty and religion in Depression Era literature and academic scholarship, particularly as they relate to the figure of the Southern sharecropper. Particular attention is paid to the figure of minister and Socialist Party member Howard Kester, and his role as an intermediary between the union and middle class audiences

Conservative pluralists : the cultural politics of Mormon-evangelical dialogue in the United States at the turn of the twenty-first century by John-Charles Duffy( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

At the turn of the twenty-first century, Mormon and evangelical intellectuals in the United States initiated theological dialogues and other exchanges meant to promote friendlier relations between their religious communities. This Mormon-evangelical dialogue was unexpected. During the late twentieth century, evangelical countercult apologists had launched the most intensive wave of anti-Mormonism seen in the U.S. since the anti-polygamy campaigns of the nineteenth century. Furthermore, Mormons and evangelicals had historically been aloof or hostile toward interfaith dialogue and the ecumenical movement. Mormon-evangelical dialogue represented a turn toward pluralism by groups known for their theological exclusivism. Theirs was, however, a cautious turn toward pluralism. Afraid of compromising their religious identities or truth claims, Mormon-evangelical dialogists rejected pluralist theologies and defied the liberal convention that divorced interfaith dialogue from evangelism. Instead, these dialogists practiced a high diplomacy in which they pursued competing partisan agendas--evangelism or apologetics--while they also tried to meliorate sectarianism among their coreligionists by advocating civility and mutual exchange. Mormon-evangelical dialogists characterized these complicated interactions as true pluralism, by contrast to liberal interfaith dialogue, which they believed tended toward relativism. American Jews, Muslims, Catholics, and mainline Protestants voiced similar anxieties about relativism during the same period as they reconsidered how to engage with religious others. Mormon-evangelical dialogue exemplifies how some American religious conservatives at the beginning of the twenty-first century thought that pluralism should be practiced. Using methods of intellectual history, this study untangles the multiple agendas at work in Mormon-evangelical dialogue during its formative period, 1997-2008: Mormons' attempts to discredit the countercult movement, evangelicals' hopes of converting Mormons to Protestant orthodoxy, Mormon and evangelical dialogists' efforts to marginalize more sectarian voices within their movements, and dialogists' promotion of conservative culture war politics. The study contextualizes the dialogue in longer historical trajectories and broader cultural shifts to show how these conservative intellectuals renegotiated the terms under which their religious communities simultaneously accommodated and resisted forces in post-1960s American culture that promoted pluralism. Primary sources include sermons and devotional literature, theological and apologetic publications, evangelism training programs, films, audio recordings of conferences and other events, websites, and blogs

Cultural Catholics in America narrative, authority and identity since Vatican II by Mary Ellen O'Donnell( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation interrogates the identifying category "cultural Catholic" in the United States and distinguishes the overarching elements that contribute to its construction and development. I argue that a deliberate connection to the Catholicism of one's past-and its authoritative contexts-constitutes the key component of cultural Catholicism. Adults, removed from their childhood environments and reflecting on the influence of their religious upbringings, use narrative to highlight distinct circumstances that had long-lasting impacts. Selectively emphasizing particular memories, cultural Catholics, from a variety of geographic, ethnic and economic origins, construct similar pictures of their childhood environments. With this range of possible sources available, I have limited this investigation to texts by authors who were born between 1940 and 1965 and who self-identify as having been raised Catholic. This first generation of cultural Catholics highlights three contexts of Catholic authority in mid-twentieth century America-the institutional Church, the family home, and the ethnic neighborhood-where, as children, they encountered definitive responsibilities and expectations. Their narratives emphasize the powerful Catholic forces occupying these different spaces. However, through the process of writing about their early religious experiences, they effectively reclaim a sense of agency regarding those environments. Cultural Catholics exhibit a sense of power over their Catholic past and assume control of the way it takes shape in history. Further, they establish themselves in a new segment of society, one removed from their particularized origins and comfortably settled in professional surroundings, precisely by invoking the past in specific ways. Their stories allow them to perpetuate their connection to the tradition and communities that formed them. However, in the process, they construct a new position that allows them to be prominent figures in secular settings and still deeply shaped by the Catholic influences that characterized their youth
The foreign missionary enterprise at home : explorations in North American cultural history by Daniel H Bays( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the first to examine at length and in detail the impact of the missionary experience on American cultural, political, and religious history. This collection of 15 essays provides a fully developed account of the domestic significance of foreign missions from the 19th century through the Vietnam War. U.S. and Canadian missions to China, South America, Africa, and the Middle East have, it shows, transformed the identity and purposes of their mother countries in important ways. Missions provided many Americans with their first significant exposure to non-Western cultures and religions. They helped to establish a variety of new academic disciplines in home universities—linguistics, anthropology, and comparative religion among them. Missionary women helped redefine gender roles in North America, and missions have vitalized tiny local churches as well as entire denominations, causing them to rethink their roles and priorities, both here and abroad. In fact, missionaries have helped define our own national identity by influencing our foreign, trade, military, and immigration policies over the last two centuries. Topics in the collection range from John Saillant's essay on the missions of free African Americans to Liberia in the 19th century to Grant Wacker's essay on the eventual disillusionment of noted writer Pearl S. Buck. Kathryn T. Long’s essay on the “Auca martyrs” offers a sobering case study of the missionary establishment's power to, in tandem with the evangelical and secular press, create and record the stories of our time. William L. Svelmoe documents the improbable friendship between fundamentalist Bible translator William Cameron Townsend and Mexico’s secular socialist president Lázaro Cárdenas. And Anne Blue Wills details the ways many American groups—black, Protestant, Catholic, and Mormon—sought to convert one another, stead- fastly envisioning “others” as every bit as “heathen” as those in far-off lands. The Foreign Missionary Enterprise at Home is an insightful, provocative collection that will stimulate much discussion and debate. It is valuable for academic libraries and seminaries, scholars of religious history and American studies, missionary groups, cultural historians and ethnographers, and political scientists
