Title

Anne C. Loveland, Southern Evangelicals and the Social Order 1800-1860 (1980)

Description

Many of the men that attended church every Sunday prior to the Civil War were the same men that owned slaves back at home. The practice of slavery seemed to contradict the teachings of the Bible. Loveland provides evidence that many ministers opposed the practice but many religious denominations decided not to fight the practice. Instead they expected exemplary behavior from the slaveholders. By focusing on slaveholder behavior, Loveland says that the church was able to decrease brutality towards slaves in many areas.
