Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Fall 2014) instances of direct references to Jefferson or the Statute in the state constitutional debates, but assures his readers that ``even when there is no recorded reference to Jefferson and Madison, state constitutional reform was obviously based upon Jeffersonian views'' (138). The final two chapters bring the author's argument into the twentieth century and offer commentary on several federal issues of religious liberty debated as constitutional questions. Ragosta can be praised for tackling such an ambitious thesis. His work, read alongside the work of his fellow scholars, suggests the vibrancy that the study of American church­state relations continues to evoke and the significance of the questions that persist. Ch rist oph er M icha el C urt is is professor of history at Armstrong State University in Savannah, Georgia. He is the author of Jefferson's Freeholders and the Politics of Ownership in the Old Dominion (Cambridge, UK, 2012). Encounters at the Heart of the World: A History of the Mandan People.
