The Second Disestablishment

Steven K. Green (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter concludes the examination of the school question by tracing the secularization of the concept of nonsectarianism. It discusses the ongoing Protestant-Catholic conflict over Bible reading and parochial school funding, the events surrounding the Blaine Amendment (an attempt to resolve the school question through constitutional amendment), and the subsequent decline in Bible reading in schools in the closing decades of the century. It ends with an examination of the leading Bible reading legal cases to demonstrate how judicial attitudes toward legal secularization had evolved by the end of the nineteenth century.
