Symposium on Civil War and Religion


September 19, 2011
Baylor University
10:30 – noon
Cox Lecture Hall,
Armstrong Browning Library
3:30 Lecture, Draper 116

The Civil War was easily the deadliest war in American history. But was it a war of religion?

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion will host a symposium on the role of faith in the Civil War, featuring lectures and presentations by several noted Civil War scholars, including John Boles (Rice University) and Amy Murrell Taylor (State University of New York-Albany).

The symposium will culminate with a keynote address at 3:30 pm in Draper 116 by George Rable, the Charles Summersell Chair in Southern History at the University of Alabama, and one of America’s most distinguished Civil War historians. Dr. Rable will lecture on “God’s Almost Chosen Peoples: Religion and the American Civil War.”
