Slavery and Sin

The Fight against Slavery and the Rise of Liberal Protestantism

Molly Oshatz

  • Connects the histories of slavery, Protestant liberalism, Darwinism, and higher criticism
  • Provides an examination of the slavery debates and liberal Protestantism before and throughout the Civil War
  • Corrects the historiographical tendency to judge both the antislavery moderates and liberal Protestants as compromisers and moral or intellectual failures
