The ideal of freedom in human life was strongly upheld during the American revolutionary epoch and was applied, in combination with other ideals and realities, to political, economic, social, and religious affairs. In addition to the economic and political factors, there were also religious forces in the rise and acceptance of the revolutionary viewpoint and in its translation into action. The religion and revolution, religious liberty, and the reorganizing the churches are described. It also presents the challenges and the new religious movements during the revolutionary epoch. The pragmatic quality of American life stems in part from the partnership between democracy and the churches struck during the revolutionary epoch.

Keywords:   American revolutionary epoch, churches, religion, religious liberty, democracy
