Previous chapters flesh out the ideals that inspired believers from across the nation; this chapter shifts the focus to one believer, Gerrit Smith, and one community, Smithfield, New York, both known for their piety, to situate an understanding of the case study in lived religion that remains the centerpiece of this volume. It does so by documenting Gerrit Smith's path to conversion, contextualizing his religious activism in the context of a town in an area of New York known as the Burned-over District that he used as a laboratory for his religious ideals and by exploring his specific beliefs more fully.

Keywords:   Gerrit Smith, Smithfield, New York, Burned-over District, lived religion, religious activism
