Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to study the religious climate which helped to produce these various sects so that that particular age in American history might be better evaluated and so that the present age might be better understood. The topics that will be most explicitly dealt with are: Anti-Catholicism and Antimasonry, Revivalism, the Unitarians and Universalists, Moral Reform and Social Betterment, Premillennialism especially as it is exhibited in the ideas of William Miller, Mormonism, and Spiritualism.
