Revivalism and social reform in mid-nineteenth-century America. [Timothy Lawrence Smith]. Revivals were once defined in the mid-nineteenth century as ‘those outpourings of the Spirit, which result in the quickening of the church and the conversion of sinners’.

It was a description quoted with approval from an American periodical by a British counterpart and so reflects an understanding current on both sides of the Atlantic.

Evangelicalism needs to be understood not only as a religious movement, but also as a social movement. As such, it was an integral part of a broader organizational revolution that transformed nineteenth-century American society.

For the most part, eighteenth-century Americans lived their lives within hierarchically ordered institutions. Among the groups that contributed to the revival tradition, the English Puritans protested against what they saw as the sacramentalism and ritualism of the Church of England in the 17th century, and many migrated to America, where they continued their fervour for experiential religion and devout living.

This combination of individual will and intense emotion marked the religion of the Second Great Awakening, and it also marked much of mainstream American culture by the middle of the nineteenth century.

Although conversion was an intensely personal experience, the revival was an intensely social event.Timothy Smith, Revivalism and Social Reform in Mid-Nineteenth Century America (New York, ), chaps. ; Donald G.
