‘For me as a historian, religion is an integral feature of the human experience, human society, the human way of life. To understand religion, in my opinion, is paramount to understanding humanity itself. Religion has played a huge role in the history of almost everything — the American Revolution, the Civil War, black slavery, abolitionism, all these things.’
