Young and Holley's latest bibliography covers 20th-century American religious history. When combined with their previous work covering the period 1620 through 1900, this volume completes the first comprehensive listing of doctoral dissertations on American religious history. The two volumes include all historically-oriented titles related to theology, religious institutions, liturgy, church music and art, individual religious leaders, church-state relations, and religious influences on science and literature, and include full bibliographic information down to UMI order numbers. This second volume features a specially augmented subject index. From Puritan theocracy to televangelism, religion has touched nearly every facet of American life. The influence of religion on the nation has been chronicled since the 17th century. To facilitate advanced scholarly inquiry, the large body of graduate-level research is assembled in these two bibliographic volumes of historically-oriented doctoral dissertations. In this contemporary volume, 72 denominations and movements are alphabetically listed, and 4,215 dissertations cited. A special feature of this work is a very detailed subject index with approximately 26,000 access points, allowing the reader to retrieve more relevant citations than a search restricted to an electronic database. This compilation, together with the earlier volume, makes nearly 8,500 dissertation titles conveniently available to the scholarly community.
