Playing the Faith Card: Shifting Influence of Religion on American Politics Tell a Friend about this Course

America is an uncommonly religious country. It is unusually diverse religiously, and yet unusually tolerant. But tolerance has thinned when religion and politics mix. Discover how religion both divides and unites us in this examination of three distinct periods in American history. Start in the 17th century when a Puritan government expelled or executed non-believers; continue in a more forbearing 19th century that, despite boiling tensions over immigration, saw the rise of numerous sects, from the Mormons in Utah to the General Church of the New Jerusalem in Bryn Athyn; and, last but not least, consider the politicization of religion today.
