HIS 3501: Colonial and Revolutionary America: Foundations of American Civilization (2020-2021)

View all HIS classes

Surveys the pre-national experience of the United States, in North American and international contexts. Main topics are the European explorations of the 1500s, the colonizing activities of the 1600s, the culture of expanding provincial America in the early 1700s, and the era of the American Revolution. How have America's distinctive institutions, ideas, and values developed-particularly those related to Christianity? In light of the foundations of American Civilization, is at all valid to say, as some insist and others deny, that the U.S. is a "Christian nation?".
