Omtale: A Republic of Righteousness
This book examines the debate over the proper connection in society between religion and public life, that took place in the fifty years following the American Revolution. Jonathan Sassi challenges the conventional wisdom, finding an essential continuity to the period's public Christianity. Most previous studies have seen this period as one of sharp disjuncture, in which the nation's cultural paradigm shifted from republicanism to liberal individualism.
