After Secular Law

Stanford University Press

This chapter presents a rereading of the Unitarian controversy in nineteenth-century Massachusetts. It represents a deliberate and violent displacement of one religious regime with another. The controversy concerned a Christian denomination that split in two, ostensibly because of theological differences over the question of the divinity of Christ. Looking at disputes over church property, the discussion shows how such disputes also served as vehicles for the development of new ideas of tolerance and religious orthodoxy, ideas that are as intolerant as their predecessors.

Keywords:   Unitarian controversy, religious regime, church property disputes, religious orthodoxy, Christ's divinity
