Show Summary Details

Preview

Before 1790, and despite the massive ideological changes sparked by the American Revolution, theology in America remained mostly in continuity with traditions from the Old World. The innovations present in American theology up to 1790 resulted more from importing British and continental advances rather than from indigenous development in the American context.
