About this item

Goetz (history, Rice U.) examines how Anglo-Virginians made the terms Negro and Christian irreconcilable, then over the course of the long 17th century, changed the meanings in order to describe and categorize human difference. While reimagining what it meant to be Christian, she says, they also invented the entirely new concept of what it meant to be white. Among her topics are English Christians among the blackest nations, faith in the blood, baptism and the birth of race, becoming Christian and becoming white, and Christian abolitionism and proslavery Christianity.
