We are seeking a third presenter for a session at the 2005 SHEAR meeting on the topic of religious skepticism and critiques of Christianity in the early republic. In accordance with the meeting's theme of "Continuities, Contingencies, and Change in the Early Republic," we envision a session that explores the persistence and significance of eighteenth-century Enlightenment religious and philosophical ideas in the early national United States. In its broad outline, we would like this session to address in new ways questions about the intersection of religion and the Enlightenment in the early republic. We currently have two papers covering different aspects of deism. We encourage proposals for papers that address the theme of our session and its relationship to the political, intellectual, and cultural history of the early republic.
Please reply off list.
