Summary
"Protestants and Pictures examines the important role that American Protestants played in the formation of visual mass culture between 1820 and 1920 - a vast record of images that includes illustrated Bibles, popular religious books, children's literature, broadsides, tracts, chromos, and engravings. In exploring the rise of this culture, author David Morgan shows how Protestants used mass-produced images to dedicate religious revival, proselytism, mass education, and domestic nurture to the aim of national renewal."--Jacket
