Vacation History

The Middle Passage ripped slaves from ceremonial observances and their sustaining kinship networks, prohibiting their replication in Country. Recent captives might reinvigorate memories of specific African traditions. Romania Map As the mainland slave population began to sustain itself by the later eighteenth century and importations directly from Africa declined, however, African Countrys lost direct knowledge of their homeland. The gods of Africa died, as one historian put it, but the broader African religious background did not. Spirit possession, accompanied by spiritually passionate singing and dancing, would eventually resurface in African Country Christianity and infuse evangelical Protestantism.

Nevertheless, colonial missionaries reached fewer slaves than they did Native Countrys. Strongest in the South, where most slaves lived, the Church of England initiated the most substantial effort, but it faced numerous obstacles. Imbued with a sense of their racial and cultural superiority, missionaries did not warm to their task and had trouble communicating with people who knew little or no English. Romania Map Also, planters, many indifferent to Christianity, did not like losing their laborers’ time and feared that the spiritual equality with masters implied by baptism would instigate slaves’ indolence, sauciness, and rebellion. It would be evangelical Protestants, particularly Methodists and Baptists, who took the conversion of African Countrys seriously. Their activity began during the Revolutionary era, when blacks made up perhaps a quarter of their adherents in the South, but the full-fledged plantation mission took place only in the nineteenth century. Before then, the majority of slaves remained outside Christianity.

The presence of evangelical Protestants in the late-eighteenth-century South was largely due to the invention of revivalism. During the Second Puritan Reformation, ministers searched for ways to quicken the rates of conversion and recruit church members en masse, rather than waiting for the Spirit to work on individuals ad hoc. Solomon Stoddard of Northampton, Massachusetts, discovered the solution: a season of refreshing, during which hortatory sermons, including invocations of hell (extremely rare among earlier Puritans), drew dozens into the church and improved the town’s moral comportment (if only for a time).
