Between 1730 and 1860, American Protestant Christianity developed in a way that set it apart from other forms of the faith in other western locales. American Protestantism moved away from traditional, establishmentarian forms of practice toward an individualistic, market‐oriented type. Contributing to these developments was an intellectual synthesis of evangelical Christianity, republican political thought, and commonsense moral reasoning.
