This chapter discusses not only the enduring power of a particular religious tradition in American discourse but also of the subtle inflections involved in translating—even within a language—across differences of time, place, and position. It explores the history of various words and phrases key to scholarly historical discourse in the twentieth century. It focuses upon English, especially English usage in North America, although the stories also weave in and out of Great Britain, France, and Germany.

Keywords: religious tradition; language; history; words; twentieth century; English; North America; Great Britain; France; Germany
