"RELIGION AND THE FOUNDING OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC"
2000-07-11 until 2000-09-03
Huntington Library, Art Collections, & Botanical Gardens
San Marino, CA, USA

This traveling exhibition organized by the Library of Congress explores the role religion played in the founding of the American colonies, in the shaping of early American life and politics, and in forming the American Republic. Many of the colonies that eventually became the United States of America were settled in the 17th century by deeply religious men and women who fled persecution in Europe to practice their faith freely.

New waves of immigrants in the 18th century brought their own religious fervor across the Atlantic, and it was a largely religious people who rebelled against Great Britain in 1776. The efforts of the Founders of the American nation to define the role of religious faith in public life is one of the central themes of this exhibition. Among the items on display will be early American books, manuscripts, letters, engravings, paintings, artifacts, and music from the collection of the Library of Congress. Boone Gallery.
