Holiness, Modernity, and American Evangelicalism before the Divide

Show Summary Details

This chapter argues that radical holiness should be viewed as an antagonistic subculture within one of the two major progressive wings of American Protestantism in the Victorian era. Radical holiness alienation is related to the gentrification of antebellum popular evangelicalism. The difference between radical holiness and mainstream Protestantism had little to do with one’s relative “modernity”.
