The Village Enlightenment in America focuses on three nineteenth-century spiritual activists who epitomized the marriage of science and religion fostered in antebellum, pre-Darwinian America by the American Enlightenment.

The Village Enlightenment in America focuses on three nineteenth-century spiritual activists who epitomized the marriage of science and religion fostered in antebellum, pre-Darwinian America by the American Enlightenment. A theologian, writer, and apologist for the nascent Mormon movement, as well as an amateur scientist, Orson Pratt wrote Key to the Universe, or a New Theory of Its Mechanism to establish a scientific base for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Robert Hare, an inventor and ardent convert to spiritualism, used his scientific expertise to lend.

Hazen's argument that the village Enlightenment emboldened persons to utilize science for the purpose of constructing religious systems opens up rich new ways of thinking about persisting themes in American religious thought. This is a fine and thought-provoking work. Excellent study of how some popular religious movements in the antebellum period in the nineteenth century made much of the 'scientific' character of their respective understandings of reality. - Richard J. Mouw, Philosophia Christi
