 Honor, Order, and Mastery in Palmer's Biblical Imagination

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the way the themes of honor and order permeate Palmer's evolving interpretation of Genesis 9:20–27 and related passages throughout his long career. Particular attention is given to Palmer's view that secession from the Union and separation from Northern Presbyterians were matters of honor, and to his association of abolitionism with disorder and infidelity.
