Oxford Handbook of Nineteenth-Century Christian Thought

ohb19c-coverThe Oxford Handbook of Nineteenth-Century Christian Thought, published in June 2017, is the result of five years of collaborative work led by J. Rasmussen, J. Wolfe and J. Zachhuber.

Through various realignments beginning in the Revolutionary era and continuing across the nineteenth century, Christianity not only endured as a vital intellectual tradition, but also contributed importantly to a wide variety of significant conversations, movements, and social transformations across the diverse spheres of intellectual, cultural, and social history. The Oxford Handbook of Nineteenth-Century Christian Thought proposes new readings of the diverse sites and variegated role of the Christian intellectual tradition across what has come to be called ‘the long nineteenth century’. It represents the first comprehensive examination of a picture emerging from the twin recognition of Christianity’s abiding intellectual influence and its radical transformation and diversification under the influence of the forces of modernity.
