Summary
This course explores the particularly rich history of religion in the U.S. Beginning with myths and realities about "Puritans," the lectures explain how rivalry among competing Protestant groups led to the constitutional compromise that is written into the First Amendment. Central to the course is a discussion of the impact of religiously diverse immigrants in the 19th century.
