The theological innovations that occurred prior to 1790 resulted largely from the importation of European progressive theology and from the extension of traditional pietistic impulses. Innovations arising from an absorption of American principles were uncommon. Those most willing to incorporate new elements with their theology were the liberals of New England, Baptists, African Americans, and radical dissenters.
