Liberation Theology Down on the Farm: Family Religious Values in the Antebellum South

Claudia Moreland, Toby Terrar
Issued Date: 29 Apr 2009


The central concern of this article is family values taught in the religion of southern working-class people in the antebellum United States. It uses a representative South Carolina family and focuses on the values in three different contexts: religion, family and labor. In living out their lives, working people encountered both success and failure. Their history is compared with the present-day family value discussion, as conducted by scholars such as James Dobson.
