Christianity and the Rise of American Progressivism

February 12, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A Lecture by Ronald J. Pestritto, Ph.D.
Graduate Dean & Professor of Politics at Hillsdale College

The talk will address the connection between the rise of American progressivism and the principles of Social Gospel Christianity. While religious fervor is most often associated with the Right in contemporary politics, the lecture will show that there was a form of Christianity that was integral to the origins of modern liberalism in the American political tradition.

Hillsdale College professors and students for the Van Andel School of Statesmanship on March 25, 2019.
Dr. Ronald J. Pestritto

Dr. Ronald J. Pestritto serves as a Senior Fellow of Hillsdale’s Kirby Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship. He is also a Senior Fellow of the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy.
