Religion, Morality, and American Politics
Tags Legal SystemMedia and CulturePolitical Theory
Although historians had long missed the importance of religion in American politics, it has recently become a central topic. My focus will be on the late- nineteenth century, with particular concern for why voting and party affiliation were highly correlated with religious preferences. I will attempt to broaden the standard argument to include not merely denominational preferences but also moral or ethical views.
