about this item

Faith and Slavery considers how in diverse places—the New Hebrides, Scotland, the United States, and East Central Africa—the Presbyterian faith shaped men’s and women’s interpretations of and interactions with chattel slavery. The chapters highlight how the particular ways Presbyterians framed the Reformed Tradition made slavery an especially problematic and fraught issue for adherents to the faith, and led to a variety of reactions to slavery—ranging from abolitionism, to indifference, to support.
