9780198202950: The Age of Atonement: The Influence of Evangelicalism on Social and Economic Thought, 1785-1865 (Clarendon Paperbacks)

In this study of the British upper and middle classes during the first half of the 19th century, Boyd Hilton reveals that the people of this age were obsessed with catastrophe: wars, famines, pestilences, revolutions, floods, volcanoes, and the great commercial upheavals which periodically threatened to topple the world's first capitalist system. The dominant evangelical sentiment of the day interpreted such sufferings as part of God's plan and, not wanting to interfere with the dispensations of providence, governments took a harsh, stand-on-your-own-feet attitude towards social underdogs, whether they were bankrupts or paupers. In this work, Hilton studies how the transformation of religious thought--including new ideas about the nature of God and the Atonement--affected the economics, philosophy, science, and politics of the period.

Boyd Hilton is at Trinity College, Cambridge.

Review:


"Hilton's fascinating, ambitious book does much more to lighten our darkness about the broader significance of evangelicalism....A persuasive and thought-provoking book."--Journal of British Studies


"Once the envy subsides, religious historians who open this extraordinary and arresting book will be strongly tempted to read it twice: once for the persuasive argument it makes about its subject, and a second time for the sheer pleasure of observing intellectual history...practiced at the very highest levels of insight and erudition....No subsequent discussion of society or religion in the age can properly begin without [this book]."--Church History


"Historians of this period are going to have to take account of Hilton's careful reading of evangelical theology and its economic implications....This important book confronts us with a puzzling mixture of unresolved relationships between religious values, social classes, material conditions, scientific ideas, and individual consciences. One of the great virtues of this volume is that it forces us to address the dilemma with abundant new information and a renewed sense of urgency."--Albion


"As a contribution to our understanding of nineteenth-century British culture, The Age of Atonement is undoubtedly a study of extraordinary importance and distinction."--Journal of British Studies


"A wide-ranging, subtle, and richly rewarding study that can be pursued through several strands....This major work of intellectual and cultural history should be in all scholarly libraries and will be well worth the serious attention of students of this period."--Religious Studies Review

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book examines the mentality of the upper and middle classes during the first half of the nineteenth century. It was an age obsessed by the idea of catastrophes; by wars, famines, pestilences, revolutions, floods, volcanoes, and - especially - the great commercial upheavals which periodically threatened to topple the world s first capitalist system. Thanks to the dominant evangelical ethos of the day, such sufferings seemed to be part of God s plan, and governments took a harsh attitude toward social underdogs, whether bankrupts or paupers, in order not to interfere with the dispensations of providence. Free Trade was adopted, not as the agent of growth it was later seen to be, but in order to restrain an economy which seemed to be racing out of control. In the 1850s and 1860s, however, a different attitude to social problems developed along with evolutionary approaches to the physical and animal worlds and a new understanding of God, who came to be regarded less as an Arnoldian headmaster and more like Santa Claus. At the centre of this ideology, and throwing light upon it, was a new way of understanding the Atonement. Nº de ref. de la librería AAV9780198202950
