Issue 29, September 2011: Religion in the Colonial World
The Institute is pleased to present the latest issue of History Now, a quarterly online journal for history teachers and students, available at www.gilderlehrman.org/historynow.
In this issue, four leading scholars provide a closer look at the religious beliefs and institutions that played major roles in the lives of colonial America’s women and men, and in doing so highlight one of the critical characteristics of our nation: its multicultural heritage.
