Uncomfortable Pews: Canada's Christians and the Making of Confederation, 1867

Very little has been written on how the Christian churches of Britain’s North American Colonies engaged with the movement to federate the colonies. The rather meagre nod to the work of the churches in the 1860s is surprising given the issues at play during the events leading up to Confederation in 1867. The colonies were torn apart by sectarian and linguistic tensions, often focused on issues surrounding religious education, the separation of church and state, and the place of religion in public life. This lecture takes a trans-denominational and trans-Atlantic approach to the Christian churches in British North America, contextualizing their concerns within global Christianity at the time, while highlighting local issues affected by the proposed Confederation.
