Religion and the State : Europe and North America in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries Hardback
Edited by Joshua B. Stein, Sargon G. Donabed
The book discusses the relationship of religion to political entities (countries) in Europe and America in the 17th and 18th centuries.
It aims to fill a gap in the literature by understanding the varieties of religious expression in Europe at the time and how those trends influenced the rise of religion in the American colonies and the early United States, and also to wonder if the founding fathers of the US desired a Christian nation.
