This volume presents key published articles on the history of the American abolitionist movement's attempt to convert the nation's religious institutions into allies in the battle for emancipation. As this volume's essays describe, many abolitionists persisted in attempting to induce the churches to take a higher antislavery stand. Their activities helped foment the sectional schism of a number of the nation's leading denominations in the decades prior to the Civil War.
