The Origins of American Religious Nationalism

Sam Haselby

Religion in America

  • Argues that the U.S. colonization of North America--not the American Revolution--is perhaps the formative event in the history of American political culture
  • Offers a new model for understanding a crucial moment in the history of American nationality and the birth of popular Protestantism in the U.S.
  • Shows how certain predominant and enduring features of American political culture are best understood as a form of religious nationalism
