Everyday Religion

Hadley Kruczek-Aaron

University Press of Florida

Second Great Awakening preachers and commentators prompted believers to reconceptualize the meaning of their everyday lives, but researchers know little about how they actually altered their material worlds in order to affirm and reflect their faith. After reviewing the ways that historians have approached lived religion as it relates to the Second Great Awakening, this chapter explores how and why historical archaeologists are uniquely positioned to make significant contributions to this research domain. It reviews the ways that past archaeologists have already begun to do so and describes the areas that require further exploration. The value of a dialectical approach to this research (with its focus on lived experience, social relations, and the process of abstraction that takes place when interpreting material and textual sources) is explained.

Keywords:   lived religion, Second Great Awakening, historical archaeologists, dialectical approach
