Rescheduled for Tuesday, December 1.

Join the renowned Yale historian, Jon Butler, as he traces the flourishing of organized religion in Manhattan between the 1880s and the 1960s, revealing how faith adapted and thrived in the supposed capital of American secularism. In Gilded Age Manhattan, Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant leaders agonized over the fate of traditional religious practice amidst massive immigration, the anonymity of urban life, and modernity’s rationalism, bureaucratization, and professionalization.
